SAC CITY, Iowa (AP) – Authorities have charged a western Iowa woman with 93 counts of animal neglect. A news release from the Sac County Sheriff’s Office says the charges stem from the rescue of 87 dogs and one cat from a farm in rural Kiron. The carcasses of five dead animals were found when officials searched the farm on Jan. 25th. The sheriff’s office says 44-year-old Mary Brodersen has been charged. Brodersen has relinquished ownership of the animals, which have been turned over to various shelters. Six of the dogs were suspected of being pregnant.
