CAMBRIDGE, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a 35-year-old southern Nebraska man has been charged with animal cruelty after dozens of dead or starving animals were found on his rented property.

Court records say Robert Brown faces six felony counts. Lexington radio station KRVN says (https://bit.ly/1dUsjcr ) the Frontier County sheriff’s office found the carcasses and the starving animals on Dec. 10. Included among the dead were five goats, six pigs, one horse, three rabbits, three cows, one calf and 20 to 30 chickens.

The office says four llamas, two goats, one horse and a donkey were still alive but didn’t have any feed or water.

A public phone listing for Brown couldn’t be found. Brown’s attorney didn’t immediately return a call Friday from The Associated Press.

Brown’s next court hearing is scheduled for Feb. 7.
