SORRENTO, Maine (AP) - Maine animal welfare investigators say they’ve removed dozens of animals from a farmer’s home for allegedly inhumane living conditions.

A state spokesman said Thursday that veterinarians are evaluating the 14 sheep, 22 pigs and eight rats for malnutrition and other health problems after officials seized the animals. A phone number couldn’t be found for the animals’ owner, 51-year-old Marc Calcia, of Sorrento. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.

Investigators have issued a summons to Calcia on animal cruelty charges. He was previously cited for animal cruelty charges, according to the spokesman.
