GREENE – A hearing scheduled in the case of the 56-year-old Brooklyn man from whom 76 Pomeranians were seized by Chenango County Sheriff’s Deputies has been postponed.
Steven W. Fong was scheduled to appear at 4 p.m. Thursday before Town of Greene Justice Dante Acunto. No reason has been given for the postponement, and a new appearance date has yet to be announced.
Fong made headlines in October when the Pomeranians were found in a double-wide trailer he owned at 145 Williams Road in Oxford. The animals had been living under conditions described as “horrific” by Chenango SPCA Executive Director Carol Hedlund, whose agency assisted the Sheriff’s Department in the rescue.
