LINN COUNTY, Ore. -- A woman is facing charges after deputies said they discovered rotting animal remains on a farm southeast of Lebanon, and residents want more to be done to protect the other livestock on the property.

Lt. Michelle Duncan with the Linn County Sheriff’s Office said 69-year old Carol Davidson was cited after dead animals were found on a property on Berlin Road. Duncan said the carcasses were still there last week.

Officials with Linn County Justice Center said Davidson is also facing 12 counts for not having licensed dogs.

Dogs, horses and goats were seen on the property as well as a woman who did not respond to requests for comment.

A woman who lives nearby who didn’t want to give her name said 13 horses have died there over the past couple months.

She and other residents are worried about the animals' well-being. Much of the property is covered in mud, and residents said the animals are being kept in small pens that are exposed to the elements.

David Grandorff, who lives across the street, said animal control officers have become a common sight at the property.

“It’s unfortunate really, those animals, they deserve better living conditions,” Grandorff said.

Duncan said they have seen no signs of animal neglect or abuse and are working with Davidson to take better care of the animals.
