Twenty-four horses on a property in Pennyslvania have been seized by authorities. It follows the seizure of five horses from the same property, in East Hanover Township, in Dauphin County, two weeks ago.
The Humane Society of Harrisburg Area said the last 24 horses from the property were removed under a search warrant served last Friday.
All the horses have been transported to rescues and private farms where they are being evaluated and provided with care, it said.
The humane society will be providing for their care through the duration of the case, which it said was likely be several months.
“Because this involves the law enforcement duties of the Humane Society we are limited in what can be released about the situation,” the society reported on its Facebook page.
“The legal process can be frustrating for those on the inside and the outside and we appreciate everyone’s passion for protecting these animals.”
The horses may ultimately be available for adoption, depending upon the outcome of the legal process.
The society said it was in need of several supplies to assist with the horses, details of which can be found on its website.
People were also invited to donate toward the animals’ care, with a donation link on its front page.
