Police discovered the remains of more than 200 dogs in a hunter's back garden after neighbors complained of a 'persistent stench'.
Officials said it was one of the largest case of animal cruelty they had seen. About 45 'emaciated' dogs were rescued from the home and taken away for treatment.
Loney L. Garrett, of Goose Creek, South Carolina, was arrested and charged with ill treatment of animals on Monday.
Deputies from Berkeley County Sheriff's Office said there had been little attempt made to bury the animals and many of the bones were found on the surface or discarded in a ditch.
Officials said that some of the dead dogs did not die of natural causes and some were found with bullet wounds to the head.
