Hundreds of animals rescued in Davis County

A nonprofit animal group says it's assisting authorities in the recovery of hundreds of animals from a small southeast Iowa city.

The Animal Rescue League of Iowa said Friday that nearly 300 living animals and more than 50 dead animals have been taken from Drakesville in Davis County.  Many are barn animals and include 30 different species.

Stephanie Filer with the rescue league says that the situation appears to be in connection to a hoarder.  Additional information was not released.

The rescue league says on its official Facebook page that the animals are being brought to the group's main campus in Des Moines.  They say the development will put a huge strain on its operations.  They are seeking monetary donations.
