More than 80 pigs found in what's being called "nightmarish" conditions were rescued from a farm in the Southern Tier.

The 85 sick pigs were found at an Olean farm Tuesday.

Farm Sanctuary, the rescue and activism group that found the animals, says the pigs were living in a dark room without food or water.

The group believes the emaciated pigs were being sold for human consumption.

Farm Sanctuary has taken some of the pigs into its care, but they're still looking for more farms to help.

It's also hoping to press animal cruelty charges against the owner.

Neither the name of the farm or the owner have been released. 

The group, along with the Cattaraugus County SPCA, was called to the same property in 2002 where they rescued more than 125 neglected pigs.
