BERRY, Ala. (AP) - More than 40 dogs found in poor living conditions have been rescued from a west-central Alabama property.

The Humane Society of United States said Monday that four people have been charged with 80 counts of animal cruelty. The news release did not give further details of those charges.

The release said Chief Agent Richard White with the 24th Circuit Drug Task Force served a seizure warrant on the Berry property and found 41 dogs in “deplorable living conditions.” The release also said many had no access to shelter or clean water and the dogs were living in feces.

The Humane Society said it removed the dogs and they will be examined by veterinarians.

The release also said 65 other dogs previously were removed from the property.
