WALLKILL, N.Y. -- The Town of Wallkill woman facing 150 counts of animal cruelty was taken out of court by ambulance Tuesday.
Sylvia Panetta, 64, was scheduled for a hearing after allegedly violating an order of protection against her left when she allegedly had muscle spasms shortly after court recessed around 4 p.m.
Police say Panetta violated the order by interfering with rescuers caring for the dogs at her Derby Road home.
Panetta was arrested back in April when officers found dozens of dogs living in what they said were deplorable conditions.
Caretakers from the Mountain Rottie Rescue say they have since been feeding the dogs and nursing many back to health.
Panetta contended that the workers were hurting the dogs.
All of the dogs have been removed from her home. It is unclear when the hearing will be re-scheduled for.
