Police find malnourished calf in home

BELOIT (WKOW)-- Police responding to a domestic disturbance call at a Beloit home made an unusual discovery.

Officers say a malnourished calf was being kept in the basement of the house. A woman living at the residence called police Sunday, and told them her husband assaulted her. Police Captain Vince Sciame says the husband was upset that calf was not being properly fed.

The couple was cited for keeping livestock in the city. The calf was taken to the University of Wisconsin Veterinary Hospital, and was later sent to an animal shelter.
