PERKINS, Okla. – An Oklahoma man is facing animal cruelty charges after several dogs were found to be in poor health.

An arrest affidavit obtained by the Stillwater News Press details how officers went to check on the pets at Ronald Ray Parker’s house in July.

Officers say they found nine dogs in the home, including one with a large open wound on its stomach that was covered in maggots.

The report alleges that the dogs had severe matting, were infested with fleas, had feces in their hair and several had skin sores.

Also, authorities allege that dog food left out was covered in roaches and vomit.

Parker was officially charged with animal cruelty.
