CANTON, Ohio (AP) - Police say a woman didn't properly care for a lion, two peacocks, a goat and other animals she housed in a rural area.
Melanie Szegedi has pleaded innocent to charges of animal cruelty filed by police in Magnolia in northeast Ohio.
The charges accuse Szegedi of keeping a lion, a goat, two peacocks and two potbelly pigs in confinement without sufficient food and water.
Authorities also say Szegedi had a raccoon and several dogs in confinement without providing proper exercise and fresh air.
Several bears Szegedi had on the property died earlier this summer.
