    A man faces animal cruelty charges after a goat wandering the streets of Hartford led police to a collection of farm animals Thursday night.

    Police said their investigation started when they got a report of a roaming goat chasing pedestrians. They tracked the goat back to 31 Blue Hills Ave. and found over a dozen other goats, roosters and chickens in a small area in the back of the home.

    The animals were in "filthy" conditions, according to police, and many were injured or malnourished.

    Kenya Miller, 41, was arrested and charged with 25 counts of animal cruelty. The 16 goats, eight roosters, one hen and two ducks were seized and will be relocated to a better home.

    No other details were immediately available.
