FAYETTEVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Officials say they’ve seized more than 130 animals from a home in a southwest Ohio village in a case they’re calling a “farmyard of horrors.”
Barb Ashmore, who is the deputy dog warden for the Brown County Animal Shelter, told WXIX-TV (http://bit.ly/2enZIyw ) on Monday that 139 animals were removed from the backyard of a Fayetteville (FAY’uht-vil) home, including dogs, goats, chickens, sheep and rabbits.
Ashmore says some animals were found dead and that others were barely alive due to the filthy conditions and lack of space to move around.
The animals were seized following an odor complaint.
