WINSLOW, Maine (AP) _ Sgt. Haley Fleming said no one has been charged, but several charges will likely be filed by the end of the month.
Four cows, three calves, three horses, a pony, a donkey and two dogs were seized Tuesday evening.
Fleming told the Morning Sentinel a search warrant was issued after authorities received reports from callers about things like cows in the road, and another report about a dead cow on the property.
The animals, which appeared to be malnourished, are being evaluated and nursed back to health.
No names were released.
