DENVER (AP) - The owner of a suburban Denver pet store has been sentenced to four years in prison for confining animals in unsanitary conditions without food, water and care.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/2b71vHs ) that 62-year-old Kenneth Kubic was sentenced this week after being found guilty of 18 counts of animal cruelty in May. He has also been ordered to have no contact with animals.

Prosecutors say Kubic neglected kittens, hedgehogs, reptiles and rodents in his Thornton store, Jurassic Pets. Some of the animals died.

Kubic is appealing the conviction.

Kubic’s wife, Lynn Denise Kubic, has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor animal cruelty in the case. His son, Brian Kubic, was sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to the same charge.
