OSHKOSH, Wis. - A Winnebago County woman has been arrested after authorities found nearly two dozen animals living in deplorable conditions in the town of Clayton.


Since Thursday, authorities have rescued 17 horses and five dogs from the home, WGBA-TV reported. Winnebago sheriff's detective Chris Braman said the animals did not look healthy. Another three horses were found dead.


Cattle Rescue Inc. will be caring for the surviving horses.


"Being that they're malnourished and they're not as strong as they should be, it makes it that much worse," rescue organization director Bill Blemke said.


The dogs went to the Oshkosh Humane Society and were being checked out by a veterinarian.


The 51-year-old woman was in custody and could face several animal mistreatment charges. Investigators plan to present a case to prosecutors in coming days.


The Winnebago County Health Department has declared the house unlivable.
