MANCHESTER, TN (AP) - Authorities say nearly 100 animals have been rescued from a home in Middle Tennessee where they were exposed to "extremely neglectful conditions."

Media report Coffee County deputies and the Animal Rescue Corps worked together to remove the animals from the property owner, who surrendered them.

The Animal Rescue Corps said many of the dogs were emaciated and lived in complete darkness in cages filled with their own waste.

The sheriff's office said they went to the property in Manchester on Sunday after receiving a complaint and called the Animal Rescue Corps after seeing the conditions in which the animals were kept.
