Five horses in concerning condition have been removed from a property in central Pennsylvania by the Humane Society of Harrisburg Area.

The society told local media that the remains of at least four dead horses were found on the property, in East Hanover Township,  near Harrisburg, in Dauphin County.

Twenty-four horses remain on the property during the ongoing investigation.

A search warrant was executed at the property last Friday evening. It was obtained after the property owner allegedly failed to respond to requests to obtain veterinary care for the animals.

The horses are believed to be Morgans or Morgan crosses.
