Police have a charged a pair of Chauvin siblings with animal cruelty after finding a dead pit bull and four other malnourished dogs at their house on Bayouside Drive.

Monique Marie White, 24, and her brother, Brandon Joseph White, 17, both of 5309 Bayouside Drive, Chauvin, were arrested Wednesday. Monique White is charged with four counts of animal cruelty. Brandon White is charged with one count animal cruelty.

After receiving an anonymous call Wednesday, a Terrebonne sheriff's deputy sent to the house found a dead pit bull lying on the ground, sticking out of doghouse. Four other starving pit bulls were found at the house. The doghouses were "covered in feces and appeared to have not been cleaned for an extended period of time," according to a Sheriff's Office news release.

Brother and sister remained in jail Thursday in lieu of a $100,000 bond.

Their arraignment is set for Jan. 19.
