MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. - Deputies have confiscated eight horses from properties owned by the Napier Family. This less than a week after hundreds of animals were seized in the raid of an animal rescue owned by the same family.

According to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office, deputies removed the horses from properties on Ballard Road and Wingate Road in the Myakka City area.

Last week, investigators raided Napier's Log Cabin Horse & Animal Sanctuary on State Road 64. Over 300 animals were seized, and 12 dogs had to be euthanized.  About 20 deceased animals were also found buried on the property.

The investigation into the facility is still under way.
