Magoffin County Woman Charged With Animal Cruelty

An eastern Kentucky woman faces dozens of counts of animal cruelty, after animal control officials find animals living in filth at her home.

Someone in the area complained about the home on Mill Branch on the outskirts of Salyersville in Magoffin County.

Animal control says there were all types of dogs on Manda Fletcher's property, some in the house, some in cages, others running around outside. We're told most were in such bad shape they had to be put down.

Fletcher says she was trying to help them. The seven dogs that were OK we're told were placed in homes. Fletcher's four children were taken by social workers and given to other family members.

Fletcher is charged with 46 counts of animal cruelty.
