CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - A Clarksburg woman has pleaded guilty to animal cruelty for keeping 21 dogs and puppies in filthy conditions.

The Exponent Telegram (http://bit.ly/WZy8vk ) reports that 66-year-old Nancy Starkey entered the plea on Thursday. Harrison County Sheriff's Lt. G.S. Scolapio said the majority of the dogs were schnauzers, including about 7-9 puppies.

He said officials were alerted to the mess when a motorist stopped by the residence after one or two dogs had escaped. Some dogs required veterinarian care.
