WARFORDSBURG, Pa. — A prosecutor says he expects criminal charges will be filed in the deaths of hundreds of pigs that perished at an abandoned southcentral Pennsylvania farm.

District Attorney Travis Kendall declined to identify suspects as the investigation continues.

A person interested in buying the 218-acre farm in Warfordsburg discoved the dead pigs Nov. 7. A spokeswoman for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said Tuesday there were between 500 and 600 carcasses. The earlier estimate was more than 900.

The ASPCA said the pigs apparently were abandoned months ago.
