The woman who the Umatilla County Sheriff’s Office was investigating on a report of a puppy mill north of Hermiston now is in the wind.

The sheriff’s office in a press release Friday, Aug. 5, reported it has turned over its investigation to the Umatilla County District Attorney’s Office for possible prosecution in an animal neglect case. The investigation began when the sheriff’s office on July 30 responded to a trailer on the 2300 block of North First Place, Hermiston, after receiving a report of a possible puppy mill.
