PLEASANT PRAIRIE, Wisconsin (WTMJ) — After a search of a Wisconsin farm where five horses were initially found dead, police say they have now located the bodies of 55 horses, 12 goats and two cows in two separate grave sites on the property.

Tests showed starvation was a factor in the deaths. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) found the grave sites and is helping with the exams of the dead animals.

Several other animals were removed from the property including various types of fowl, sheep, goats and a bull. The animals are now being cared for and sheltered by local rescue groups.
