For the full post, head on over to the Fugly Blog but the basics are as follows.
6 horses were found dead on the property in varying stages of decomposition.
Ownership of the horses seems to be a bit sketchy. Some are/were owned by someone living out of state. Others are/were owned by someone living on the property, charged with caring for the horses. I might add at this time that the property is a rental so we have three involved, potentially guilty, parties: the out of state horse owner, the “caretaker”, and the property owner.
For more details on the seizure, here is a copy of the press release.
Huge shout out to Marion County for their quick response in this matter. They acted immediately upon receiving the phone call about the horses, got a vet out, blanketed them, brought food and water and got them the hell outa there.
