About 70 animals ranging from cats to a donkey are being cared for after authorities seized them from a Tennessee home.
The White County Sheriff's Office took the animals from a home in Sparta, which is just west of Crossville.
The sheriff's office called it a hoarding situation, and worked with an animal rescue group to remove the animals.
They seized 24 chickens, 12 rabbits, 12 dogs, seven cats, six ducks, three turtles, a goose, a goat, and a donkey.
The Animal Rescue Corps. says most of the animals are underweight and suffered from external parasites and untreated wounds. It also says the animals had no access to clean water or sufficient food.
The animals are getting veterinary exams, vaccinations, and other medical treatment.
The ARC will care for them until they can be placed with shelters and rescue groups.
