About 100 dead animals found in barn

April 10, 2013

Authorities investigating a foul stench coming from a barn in Madison County on Tuesday discovered as many as 100 dead animals and many others suffering from malnourishment. Horses, goats, sheep, geese, cows and chickens were stacked on top of each other in the Summitville barn, investigators said. Investigators haven’t determined whether charges will be filed against property owners Daniel and Carrie Ault, who run a meat-processing business in Grant County.
