EDMESTON – An Edmeston man is facing charges after 27 dead cows were found at a dairy farm, according to New York State Police.

James Mumbulo, 45, is charged with 27 misdemeanor counts of the state Agriculture and Markets law of overdriving, torturing and injuring animals.

Police say they were dispatched to a rented dairy farm on County Route 20 in Edmeston to check the welfare of several animals. When troopers inspected the barn, they found 27 dead cow carcasses and several inches of manure, according to police. They also found that there was no food or water in the barn.

Mumbulo was arrested Sunday after police consulted with a veterinarian and the District Attorney’s Office. He was then released on appearance tickets for the Town of Edmeston Court on Nov. 19.
