PLEASANT GROVE (CBS13) – More animals have been rescued from a Pleasant Grove property that was already raided by authorities earlier this week.

Deputies say the raid came after several attempts to address issues at the property.
Later in the week, authorities served a second warrant at the property due to logistical constraints that hampered them from taking in some of the animals.
A total of 64 animals have now been seized from the property by authorities. The animals include 18 horses, 8 geese, 7 dogs, 7 alpacas, 5 peacocks, 5 exotic birds, 4 sheep, 2 pigs, 2 brahma bulls, 1 longhorn bull, 1 rooster, 1 camel and 1 ostrich.READ MORE: Person Cited After Roman Candle Starts Small Fire In Woodland
