(SUMMITVILLE) - Madison County is going to have to foot a clean up bill that may cost more than $30,000 after hundreds of dead animals were found on a farm.

Authorities found the dead animal pileup on a farm that belongs to Daniel and Carrie Ault. The owners told police they got overwhelmed and got behind on caring for the animals.

24-Hour News 8 news partner The Herald Bulletin reports the total bill will likely cost $30,000 or more for veterinary tests of the 30 animals found alive, equipment, worker overtime, security and other costs. That number could just be a starting point because more bills are still coming in.

The county will pay some bills from the owner's insurance company and donations collected. They will also explore every avenue in an effort to pay the bills by cutting other services including building repairs and court expenses.
