CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – A couple charged with animal cruelty in Montgomery County now face additional charges for vandalism.

Eric and Nicole Hulbig were charged with four counts of aggravated animal cruelty in June when authorities discovered dead and decomposing puppies in their home.

Nicole was charged again in Sumner County where more animal remains were found along with live dogs in poor condition. She was running a rescue/service dog training program known as Raja Renata Ranch in a large barn on her mother’s property.

The couple was booked Thursday for the damage done to their home in Montgomery County. According to arrest warrants, animal feces were found in the home, which combined with the decomposing animal bodies left a strong odor.

There was also damage to the sub-floor, windows, and walls. Repairs to the home will cost an estimated $25,225.

Eric and Nicole Hulbig were both charged with vandalism. Their bonds were set at $25,000 each.
