Montgomery: Authorities are investigating the deaths of dozens of cats found at an upstate New York home after the former owner was evicted.

The Times Herald-Record reports that the remains of 89 cats had been removed from the house in Montgomery as of midday Friday.

Montgomery town Police Chief Arnold "Butch" Amthor says conditions in the house were "horrific."

Boxes containing more dead cats were found in an open grave behind the house.

A label on one box read, "RIP Zippy you were a good little girl."
