Boy in court over Cymmer Ty-Nant Cat Sanctuary burglary
A 15-year-old boy has appeared in court in connection with a break-in at a Neath Port Talbot cat sanctuary.
The boy, who has been charged with burglary and criminal damage, went before Swansea Youth Court on Thursday.
Three cats from Ty-Nant sanctuary in Cymmer were found dead while another three were later found unharmed after a break-in on 30 July.
The boy and 18-year-old Frank Lewis will appear at Swansea Crown Court on 2 September.
An online fundraising campaign launched in the wake of the break-in raised more than £19,000 for the sanctuary.
