REMSEN(AP)--Authorities in northwest Iowa say a Remsen farmer faces more charges related to an animal neglect investigation.
Andrew Vaske was charged earlier this month with one count of animal neglect after authorities say they found that livestock at two rural Remsen locations did not have enough feed and water. About 30 cattle were seized and several others had died.
This week, the Plymouth County sheriff's office filed two charges of failing to dispose of a dead animal and four charges of failing to vaccinate terriers and coonhounds.
Vaske is scheduled to appear in court on March 30th for a plea hearing on the animal neglect charge. He is set to appear in court on April 6th on the other charges.
