Bail Reduced In Bedford County Animal Hoarding Case

Bail has been reduced for the couple at the center of a Bedford County animal hoarding case.

A preliminary hearing held Wednesday for Nyal and Renee Piper who each face hundreds of charges in connection to an animal abuse case that resulted in more than 90 dogs being rescued from a home around New Year’s.

State police say they responded to the Piper’s home after tip stemming from the humane society.

At the home, located along the 1000 block of Business Route 220, they say they found dozens of dogs along with several dead and decaying animals.

Troopers say a total of 90 dogs, eight cats and a turtle were rescued from the home.

They say some of the dogs had to be euthanized.

The Pipers’ bail was originally set at $1 million but the judge reduced it to $250,000 Wednesday.

As a condition of the lowered bail, officials say the couple cannot own or work with animals, must undergo random searches of their property and cannot leave Bedford County without the approval of probation.
