— A Zebulon couple surrendered more than 100 animals Tuesday to animal control. The conditions at the home were so bad that most of the animals did not survive, authorities said.

The couple, Johnny and Mary Morton, were charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty.

A half dozen dogs from their home are now available for adoption at the Wake County Animal Control center.
