SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - Prosecutors say a mother and her adult son abandoned 30 dogs in a Southern California park.

The Orange County Register (bit.ly/PhHGMa) says 59-year-old Floreliza Aguillo Escano has been charged with animal abandonment, cruelty and neglect. Her 26-year-old son James Francis Alambra has been charged with animal abandonment and mistreatment.

Two kennels stuffed with 30 dogs were left under trees at San Remo Park in Laguna Hills in May.

Investigators say the dogs were stacked atop one another without food or water.

The dogs, ranging in age from 6 months old to 6 years old, showed signs of neglect, including matted fur and ingrown toenails.
