A Clarksville woman faces a dozen counts of animal cruelty charges after deputies in two counties found dead dogs at homes in Montgomery and Sumner counties.
Sumner County deputies, acting on a tip hours after Nicole Hulbig was arrested in Clarksville, found 37 bags filled with animal remains at Hulbig's mother's home.
Hulbig split time living in Clarksville and Sumner counties. Deputies said the remains in the bags were in such poor shape they couldn't determine when, nor how, the animals died.
In addition, deputies removed more than three dozen dogs still alive, but in poor condition, from the Sumner County home.
Hulbig told investigators she trained the dogs to be service dogs and had sought nonprofit status. WSMV tried to contact Hulbig for this story but our calls were not returned.
