(AP) — Authorities have removed several animals from a Dubuque farm where more than a dozen other animals were found dead.

The Telegraph Herald reports that several of the 26 animals removed earlier this month were in poor health.

The animals removed included horses, a pony, goats, sheep, pigs, geese and other fowl. Authorities say the bones and rib cages of some of the animals could be seen, and many had matted hair.

Charges are pending.
