TULLY, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say the dog control officer for a central New York town has been charged with animal cruelty after more than 200 dogs and cats were found living in filthy conditions on her property.

Local media report that Pompey (PAHM’-pee) dog control officer Susan Snavlin was charged Monday after animal welfare workers removed more than 70 dogs and cats from her property in the nearby town of Tully, just south of Syracuse.

Authorities say another 100 to 150 dogs and up to 50 cats are being removed Tuesday.

One animal welfare official says the animals were living among feces and urine.

Town officials say Snavlin has resigned from her position, which she has held since 2003. It couldn’t be determined if she has a lawyer.
