CRANDON, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities say a Wisconsin woman allowed adult dogs to eat puppies and a horse carcass, and that her home had up to 2 feet of dog droppings on the floor.

Forest County District Attorney Chuck Simono charged 52-year-old Patty Kirker on Wednesday with 156 counts related to animal mistreatment about a month after authorities seized dozens of dogs, wolf-dog hybrids and horses from her property in Crandon in northeastern Wisconsin. Six counts are felonies.

According to the criminal complaint, a witness told police she saw adult dogs eating young puppies on the property. Authorities think the dogs turned to other sources of food after Kirker failed to feed them properly.
