GREELEY -- The Weld County Sheriff's Office is investigating an animal cruelty case near Fort Lupton.

It happened in the 15000 block of Nancy Avenue in unincorporated Weld County.

There aren't many details just yet. Sheriff's Office spokesman Steven Reams said his office and other emergency service providers received several phone calls urging authorities to look into the matter.

"The sheriff’s office has taken substantial investigative steps in this matter and has relocated the animals in question based due to interference in this matter by unknown citizens," Reams said in a statement.

More details as they become available.
