PHOENIX (AP) - Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies say they’re investigating a case of alleged animal cruelty at a residential property northwest of Phoenix.

Investigators say a woman has been arrested for allegedly hoarding animals.

Neighbors notified the sheriff’s office because of the noise and the smell.

Deputies found more than 100 animals, including zebras, alpacas, horses, pigs, goats, sheep, lambs and chickens.

The woman who lives there wouldn’t allow detectives on the property, so they had to get a search warrant.

Deputies say some of the animals didn’t have water.

They say the woman who owns the animals could face felony charges.

Her name hasn’t been released yet.
