Leaders in Clark County have given horse owners one last chance to claim their animals.
Clark County Animal Control officials seized dozens of horses and birds from a Las Vegas property Thursday after police discovered they were living in conditions that would constitute animal cruelty.
The animals were taken from a home on Fairhaven Street near Lake Mead and Decatur boulevards. Investigators said the animals were living in unhealthy conditions that were likely to cause sickness, injury or death.
All of the animals were taken to the Animal Foundation, but the county says owners whose horses were taken from the home have until 6:30 p.m. Tuesday evening to pick up the animals.
So far, Clark County says 12 horses were picked up by their owners, but nine horses that have yet to be claimed.
If the horses aren't claimed by Tuesday evening, the Animal Foundation will search for adoptive homes for the animals.
