CORYELL CO. -- Police are still investigating in Coryell County where hundreds of animals were found in terrible conditions.
They are now working on removing the animals over the next couple days.
Police found nearly 250 dogs, two mountain lions, two tigers,one monkey, one deer, nearly 40 horses. They even found mice, lizards and birds.
The investigation started when police heard about some malnourished animals.
"We knew it was going to be a large deal. It ended up being larger than we had even thought, and it's got to the point that we're going to be out here for quite a few more days," said Chief Deputy Joe Blakely.
This all led police to arrest Curtis and Racine Moore.
The horses are now in the care of a local veterinarian who says he has had to deal with a few of the Moore's horses before.
Now Houston Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is removing the animals from the home.
