HAMILTON, Mont. -

Dozens of animals seized in an alleged animal cruelty case in Hamilton are steadily moving into foster care.

Future Farmers of America members are expected to find homes for the remaining cattle herd now corraled at the fairgrounds.

Two yaks have been transported to a ranch in Kalispell.

Gary Lanser penned a few of the sheep for transport. He's a board member of Safe Haven Llama and Alpaca Sanctuary. He didn't think the sheep looked too bad.

"I'm probably going to take three or four. That's about all I can handle," said Lanser.

The animals were confiscated from a Hamilton farm.

A 74-year-old man, who is reportedly in ill health, faces a charge of felony aggravated animal cruelty.
