Information from WYSH Radio
The owner of a pet crematory where investigators found dozens of dead dogs and cats in mass graves is now facing criminal charges.
A Morgan County grand jury indicted Cameo Farr on three counts of violating the state’s hazardous waste management act. Under that act, people can’t dump solid waste in a landfill that doesn’t have the proper permits.
Farr is also facing a misdemeanor for violating Tennessee’s air pollution control act. Investigators say Carr knowingly lied about how she was burning materials and her certifications.
She has already posted bond and is out of jail, according to the Morgan County jail.
Farr owned Elliott Pet Services in Morgan County.Â In December, investigators uncovered the remains of animals on her property that were supposed to be cremated. The next month, Farr surrendered her permit to perform pet cremations.
