LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Authorities in the central Kentucky city of Bloomfield say they found dozens of animals at a house after neighbors complained of a stench and dogs barking.
About 40 dogs were euthanized Tuesday after animal control officials went to the two-story home and found 52 dogs inside it, along with about 20 more in a nearby barn. Officials said there were also nine cats, three rabbits and a bird.
A veterinarian recommended the dogs be put down because of dehydration and mange.
Animal control officer Jon Ryan said most of the remaining dogs would also probably be euthanized.
James and Rosella Miller were charged with animal cruelty.
