Elgin woman charged with animal cruelty agrees to give up goats


The owner of a Kane County mini zoo charged with animal cruelty and neglect has agreed to give up her last two animals.

Kane County Animal Control has impounded a total of 94 starved and sick animals from Stacy Fiebelkorn of Elgin, who recently agreed to give up her final two goats. Since she relinquished the animals, Fiebelkorn will not have to pay $3,555 for 30 days of care.

Fiebelkorn's collection of animals included chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits, goats, horses, ponies, donkeys, alpacas, and llamas. All have been removed from her ownership and an administrator with Kane County animal control says nearly all have been adopted.

Fiebelkorn was arrested in March after authorities found 11 dead animals at her facility.
