A Virginia Beach woman faces charges after dozens of rabbits were removed from her home and others were found dead.
Media outlets report 60-year-old Tegwen M. Davis was charged with three counts of misdemeanor animal cruelty and two counts of improper disposal of a dead animal.
Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center spokesman Wayne Gilbert says more than 90 rabbits were removed Thursday and Friday from Davis' home. Authorities initially went to the home after receiving a report of a foul smell.
Gilbert says five rabbits were dead and two more had to be euthanized.
He says many of the rabbits were living in filthy conditions. They are being examined and placed for adoption.
