BALCH SPRINGS, Texas - Nearly 200 animals have been rescued by the SPCA of Texas from a Dallas County home.
On Friday, 176 animals - including 111 hens, 31 roosters, 10 chicks, nine puppies, seven pheasants, six dogs, a peacock, and a kitten - were seized and taken to the Russell E. Dealey Animal Rescue Center.
They were kept there until a court hearing on Wednesday.
