HONEA PATH, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Rescuers with the Big Oaks Animal Farm said Abbeville County deputies called them to a Honea Path area farm over the weekend to rescue malnourished animals.

Joe Mann, founder of Big Oaks, said he arrived at the home on Saturday after deputies found one dead horse and seized five others.

Mann said the sheriff's office placed the horses in his care and then called him back to the scene on Sunday to round up goats from the Honea Path property that were not being properly cared for.

Mann said Big Oaks will care for the animals at the rescue farm in Greenwood until the outcome of the case.

Deputies in Abbeville confirmed they are investigating but were unable to provide additional details on Sunday.
