Animal cruelty is alleged at a Swan River-area farm. (SUBMITTED)

Dozens of animals have been seized from a Swan River-area farm after investigators allegedly found them unhealthy, neglected and not properly cared-for.

Police launched an investigation after receiving a civilian complaint on Nov. 27 about a farm in the RM of Swan River.

On Dec. 1, with the assistance of local veterinarians, staff from the Provincial Office of the Chief Veterinarian, and local animal control officers, a total of 27 dogs, 15 horses and two donkeys were seized and removed from the property. 

A 68-year-old local area man was arrested and released on conditions. He is scheduled to appear in Swan River court on Jan. 5 to face criminal charges for cruelty to animals.

The investigation continues.
