HENDERSON CO., KY (WFIE) - A Henderson Co. man is now facing charges in connection with an animal cruelty investigation.
Hundreds of animals had to be rescued from 73-year-old Doil Stogner's property in Reed last month.
The rescued animals were also found living amongst the bodies of at least a hundred other animals that had died, according to the Henderson County Sheriff's Office.
The sheriff's office says Stogner was issued a criminal summons Tuesday morning for 544 counts of cruelty to animals.
Stogner is set to appear in court in December.
