KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — Klamath County authorities say they have seized 43 animals that were poorly treated at a farm.

The Klamath Falls Herald and News reported that the animals are 20 goats, 12 dogs, four horses, three llamas, two miniature donkeys, a cat and a rat.

The two donkeys had curled hooves and have been taken to a farm that rehabilitates animals. The rest of the animals are at the Klamath Animal Shelter, where workers report problems such as lice on the goats and a lack of nourishment.

A forfeiture hearing is expected within the next two weeks. Shelter workers say they had been working with the owners for eight years. The owners were not named.
