A Neillsville woman faces 26 separate charges after authorities found dozens of neglected animals on her farm last month. Carolyn Christie is being accused of mistreating 43 dogs and six horses, which were seized from her property on August 16.

Clark County District Attorney Lyndsey Brunette filed 10 counts of intentionally mistreating animals, four counts of providing an animal shelter with improper ventilation, six counts of providing an animal shelter with improper sanitation, four counts failure to provide proper food for an animal and two counts failure to provide shelter from the sun for an animal.

If convicted, Christie, 53, could face a maximum of nine months in jail and a $10,000 fine on each of the charges.

She is scheduled to make her first court appearance in the case on Wednesday.
