GADSDEN - AL -

The Etowah County District Attorney's office says the owner of animals removed from a Gadsden home will be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the medical  examination of the animals. Charges could come by week's end.

More than 100 animals are being held at the Humane Society of Etowah County. Authorities there say they can bathe and feed the animals, but cannot treat them with medication until a judge gives an order.  It is unclear when that could happen.
