LATIMER COUNTY, Oklahoma -- The owners of nearly 80 animals seized last month by the Latimer County Sheriff's Office on cruelty complaints have surrendered the animals to the county.

Anne and Shane Duhon signed the relinquish papers Tuesday afternoon at the Latimer County courthouse.

The sheriff's office seized the animals from the Cajun Country Ranch in Wilburton, where the couple lives with their children.

The county was charging the Duhons $4.00 per day to hold each animal for the 90-day period. The Duhons chose to give the animals up rather than pay the nearly $30,000 fee.

The animals, which include dogs, horses, cats, rabbits and a duck, will eventually be placed up for adoption.

Anne and Shane Duhon are being held on $30,000 bond.

Their children are in state custody after Latimer County Sheriff Robbie Brooks said they were found in deplorable living conditions at the Cajun Country Ranch.
