“They were really disgustingly thin,” said Hall.
When they went deeper into the property, officers found several dead cows.
Video showed a cow dead in the middle of a field, as well as others looking thin and unhealthy.
“Some of them, frankly, they’re so thin, they might not make it,” said Waggoner.
Police officers and officials with the Florida Department of Agriculture and the SPCA gathered on Friday to feed the animals and try to figure out the next move.
“They’re going to have to have blood tests. They’re going to have to have tests for diseases. They’re going to have to be dewormed and vaccinated,” said Waggoner. “It’s huge.”
