By West Kentucky Star Staff
MCCRACKEN COUNTY - A man facing numerous counts of cruelty to animals appeared in court on Tuesday.

According to the McCracken Court Court Clerk, 66-year-old Harold Campbell's case was continued to February 23.

Campbell faces 51 counts of second-degree cruelty to animals, related to the search of a home in October of 2019, where more than four dozen Chihuahuas were found in poor living conditions. Some of the animals died.

Campbell also faces multiple counts of contempt of court for failing to appear on the charges last fall.

Campbell's daughter, Jennifer, pleaded guilty to several similar charges in August and was sentenced to 11 months in jail on the animal cruelty charges, and a year on failure to appear charges.

The McCracken County Humane Society was able to nurse the surviving Chihuahuas back to health and find homes for them all.
