ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) - Authorities say three Indiana animal neglect cases brought dozens of cats and other animals into their care in Madison County.

The (Anderson) Herald Bulletin reports (https://bit.ly/2e9VHRw ) an anonymous tip Monday led police to a mobile home where officers found three people living with 39 cats, two dogs, three snakes, two guinea pigs, a bearded dragon, a parrot and a tarantula.

Elwood police say feces was on walls and floors while litter boxes were overflowing. Officials say a woman was trying to care for the animals.

On Tuesday, police were called to a house in Elwood where they found 15 cats, four kittens and six dogs. Many of those animals suffered from severe flea infestation. The third case involved 10 dogs, two cats and a number of birds in Madison County.
