SEVERN, Md. — Anne Arundel County police say animal control officers have removed four horses, five ponies and three goats from a property in Severn because of neglect.

Authorities say animal control has been regularly checking the property since January, when a dead horse and two dead baby goats were removed.

The other animals were left there, but the owner was required to obtain veterinary treatment for them, provide proper shelter and address other issues.

But officials say on Monday, animal control got information from a veterinarian indicating that the animals needed to be removed.

The animals are in protective custody and officials are confirming the identity of the multiple owners of the animals.
