Dawson -- An Albany pet groomer goes on trial in Terrell County for ten counts of animal cruelty.

Lawyers picked a seven-person jury for Steve Morgan's trial Monday, and testimony will start Tuesday.

Prosecutors say they found rows of filthy kennels at Morgan's Terrell County home December 23, 2004. They described most of the dogs found there as "filthy and under nourished."

Two died, and eight others are still being kept at foster homes. The Department of Agriculture also seized horses, goats, pigs, geese, ducks, and chickens found on Morgan's property.

Morgan owns Puddle Jumpers pet grooming business. His trial is expected to last until Thursday.
