North Dakota authorities are investigating a major hoarding operation in Cass County where more than 170 dogs were found living in filthy conditions.

The Fargo Forum reports a range of different breeds were seized by sheriff's deputies from a rural Wheatland property Wednesday and taken to Casselton Veterinary Service to be treated. Wheatland is about 30 miles west of Fargo.

The Cass County Sheriff's Office said the animals were being kept in very poor conditions. All of the dogs survived, but some were immobilized from their unkept coats, a Forum reporter said.

Law enforcement will determine the process for finding the dogs temporary homes on Thursday.

It's unclear if the property owners will face criminal charges.
