A Gwinnett County woman was cited for neglecting animals and practicing veterinary medicine without a license, when Gwinnett County sheriff's deputies came to her home to try to evict her and found it full of animals living in their own waste.
Linda Coker was cited with 16 counts of animal neglect, after animal control officers found 15 dogs, one cat, a rabbit and a squirrel living without clean food or water at her Grayson home.
Gwinnett County police also said she was charged with practicing veterinary medicine without a license, because they found evidence that she was giving dogs rabies vaccines.
Those dogs have since been taken from her home and placed in boarding facilities. Several of the feral cats that were found living around her home were being euthanized Thursday.
