(BROWN CO.) – Police say 60 pigs left in filthy conditions were removed from a Brown County farm Monday and their owners arrested.
Several pig rescue organizations took the pigs to their new owners, Kanda Farm Sanctuary in Nobelsville, where they will be vet treated, spayed or neutered and put up for adoption.
Police arrested Roy Fish and Penney Carey on charges of animal cruelty for leaving dead animals in living quarters with dozens of living animals.
The pigs that were still alive have been in muddy living conditions for at least two years and standing in mud up to the bellies. They were defecating in and drinking from the muddy water.
