The animal was one of more than 130 dogs seized from a hoarder two weeks ago. The animals had been living in one large pack for years without proper food, medical care or human interaction, officials said.

CALGARY - A Calgary woman is facing dozens of animal cruelty charges after more than 30 dogs were seized from a home.

Police and bylaw officers were called to the house in the Acadia neighbourhood in May when a delivery person smelled a foul odour.

The Calgary Humane Society says feces and urine were found throughout the building.

Health officials later declared the house unfit for human habitation.

Veterinarians also determined 17 of the dogs had been in medical distress.

Beverly Jean Creed faces 51 counts under Alberta's Animal Protection Act and is to appear in court Aug. 27.
