COLCORD, Okla. (AP) - Multiple complaints of animal cruelty and neglect have been lodged against a Delaware County couple after authorities removed 14 large dogs and nine puppies from their home.

The Tulsa World reports (http://bit.ly/29bFKod ) that Delaware County deputies and volunteers removed the dogs on Saturday. Officials also found an 8-foot by 10-foot mass grave on the property that contained the carcasses in black trash bags of 18 dogs, three rabbits and a cat.

Dr. Cari McDonald, a veterinarian, says the house where the dogs were found was not livable for animals, much less for humans.

A makeshift veterinarian clinic was set up to check the dogs for diseases. Volunteer Joleen Hanson says it looked like a case where someone tried to care for the dogs, but it just got out of hand.
