BRIDGEPORT - An urban farmer in Bridgeport has sold all of Save Farms' animals following claims of mistreatment. 

Police ordered Save Farms to close last month after the Department of Agriculture found some of the animals were hurt or poorly fed.

Since opening the urban farm in June, Save Farms has taken care of donkeys, chickens and pigs on a property located next to Bridgeport Animal Control offices.
