In Pennfield Township, Michigan, a response to an animal welfare complaint unveiled an extensive illicit cannabis cultivation operation. The incident, occurring in Calhoun County, began when deputies were summoned to a residence on the 300 block of Cooper Street. Upon arrival, they discovered the carcasses of four goats at the rear of the premises, prompting further investigation.

Authorities subsequently secured a search warrant for the property to probe for additional animal welfare concerns. The search, conducted on the following day, led to the discovery of a significant cannabis grow operation housed within one of the property's buildings. Law enforcement officials reported the confiscation of over 140 cannabis plants and various cultivation equipment from the site.

As of now, there has been no announcement regarding arrests linked to the operation. The investigation into both the animal welfare complaint and the illegal cannabis grow continues, highlighting the ongoing challenges faced in regulating cannabis cultivation and ensuring animal welfare.
