YAMHILL, Ore. (AP) - Authorities have seized 122 farm animals and charged a Yamhill County man with neglect.

The Yamhill Valley News-Register reported Wednesday that 25 animals were dead last weekend when deputies and volunteers went to the property north of McMinnville near the town named Yamhill.

The sheriff’s office says they seized 55 chickens, 25 ducks, 17 sheep, 12 goats, six rabbits, four turkeys and three dogs.

Deputies said many animals were living in feces and did not have access to clean water and food.

The animals were sent to a veterinarian for assessment and treatment. Deputies said 43-year-old Steven Michael Shore was cited on an accusation of animal neglect.
