LOS ANGELES (AP) - Animal cruelty and neglect charges have been filed against two Los Angeles women who allegedly kept hundreds of chickens, dogs, cats and other animals in filthy conditions at their homes.

The city attorney’s office filed four charges on Friday against Corey Carnegie of Lake Balboa after allegedly finding 32 dogs, five cats and two potbellied pigs. Authorities say many had skin conditions, flea infestations and other problems.

One of the charges carries a maximum sentence of a year in jail and $20,000 in fines.

On Tuesday, Georgeanne Leong was charged with neglectfully keeping 249 chickens, 21 ducks and four Guinea pigs inside her Sherman Oaks home.

There were no public phone listings for Carnegie or Leong and they couldn’t immediately be reached for comment on Friday.
