LAURENS, S.C. (AP) - Officials are investigating after a report of almost two dozen dead horses found in a ravine on a property in Laurens County.

Joe Mann, who runs the Big Oaks Rescue Farm in Greenwood, tells WYFF-TV that there were many as two dozen dead horses in the ravine. He says he took three malnourished horses and a donkey from the property and is caring for them at the rescue farm.

Area media outlets report the investigation centers on a property in the community of Waterloo. Deputies were called there Monday to investigate a report of a dead horse.

According to the incident report, animal control was called earlier this month to respond to the report of the malnourished horses and donkey.

No charges have been filed in the case.
