They call it one of the worse cases of animal cruelty they've ever seen.
Animal control officials found several dogs and horses, some dead, others barely alive, outside a home.
The two people who live there now face several charges.
The gruesome discovery was made earlier this week at a home in the Jarvis community of Knox County.
While officials found several animals who were starving, they also found several dogs and horses who had already died.
The animals' remains were scattered throughout the property.
Many of the surviving animals had been tied up and were not able to get away.
24-year-old Earl Enlow and 22-year-old Melanie Rogers together face a total of 17 charges of animal cruelty.
Both have since bonded out of jail and have pleaded not guilty.
The animals taken from the property are now in the care of the Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter.
