FORREST COUNTY (WDAM) - A Forrest County homeowner could be facing child endangerment and animal neglect charges after authorities seized more than a dozen pets from his home Wednesday afternoon. Investigators said the animals were living in unsanitary conditions.

Acting on a warrant, Forrest County Deputies, along with the Dept. of Human Services and the Southern Pines Animal Shelter, removed about 15 dogs and cats from inside a mobile home at 45 J.L. Williams Road, Lot 23.  

They said two dead cats were found inside and they said several other sets of burned animal bones were discovered in a barrel in the back yard.  

No one was home at the time, but investigators said five people, including two children, had been living there. 

They also said about a dozen other husky-mix puppies escaped from inside the home before they could be rounded up.
