FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - Fond du Lac County prosecutors could file more than 220 charges against a man who had nearly 70 dogs removed from his property this year.

Those charges would include mistreatment of animals and failure to provide food and water.

Authorities visiting the location last May were looking for a stray calf which had been reported as wandering in the area. When deputies visited the dog breeding and hobby farm in Van Dyne, they found some dead animals and dozens of others starving.

68 Siberian huskies were seized. Three of the dogs had to be put down. Almost all of the remaining dogs have since been adopted through the Fond du Lac Humane Society.
