NEW HAMPTON (KWWL) -- A Chickasaw County man is in jail charged with animal neglect.

Authorities say Kelly Olson is charged with 18 different counts of animal neglect and four counts of not disposing of dead animals.

The charges stem from a raid at a farm near Fredericksburg late last month. A dozen or so horses, and a calf, were found to be starving, sick or malnourished.

Olson previously served jail time after being convicted of neglecting 18 horses in Fayette County in July of 2008.

He is currently being held in the Chickasaw County jail on $15,000 bond.
