Over 200 animals were rescued yesterday from the inhumane living conditions they were being subjected to.
"A search warrant was executed on approximately five acres of land in the Redlands," said Miami-Dade Police Department's Detective Lee Cowart. "Farm animals were being confined in inadequate conditions, lacking proper shelter, food and water."
According to The Miami Herald, court documents they obtained stated that many of the animals "were experiencing an excessive amount of pain and suffering from a lack of medical attention" and "were seen limping, with some unable to place pressure on their legs."
The animals were also severely malnourished, and are currently in the care of the SFSPCA awaiting veterinarian's medical assessment.
