Thibodaux woman accused of animal, child cruelty

THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - Police say 35 pets and a young girl were found living in a feces-filled and urine-soaked Thibodaux home that reeked so bad that the child was bullied at school because of it.
    
The Courier reports (http://bit.ly/ID5bBK ) the girl's mother was booked with animal and child cruelty.
    
Police say 45-year-old Lorencia Raffray was arrested Friday after Thibodaux Police got a tip that she was hoarding animals.
    
Thibodaux Police spokesman David Melancon said there were 14 cats, 18 kittens and three dogs inside the home.
    
He said the odor could be detected from outside and was so bad inside officers had to step outside several times to get fresh air.
    
Raffray is free on a $500 bond.
    
It was unclear whether she has an attorney.
