Sac City, Iowa (AP) — Women in Iowa have been charged with criminal charges after more than 1,000 pigs were found dead on the premises.
KCCI-TV reports that the Sheriff's Office in Sack County answered Thursday's phone call and found animals dead in two confinement areas. According to the authorities, 33-year-old Elana Laber was in charge of maintaining the site.
According to the sheriff's office, the pigs have died for at least a week and have no access to food or water.
Laber has been charged with two counts of one criminal mischief and two counts of livestock neglect. She didn't immediately know if she had a lawyer.
