| Suffering Equines Rescued from Sullivan County
Five horses and three mules are emaciated,
living without food or clean water
Yesterday, life changed for eight severely neglected equines.
For several weeks, investigators from HSMO’s Animal Cruelty Task Force had been working with the owners of these equines to improve their living conditions. When the animals’ conditions continued to deteriorate, it became apparent the owners were unwilling to provide adequate care for their animals.
The animals had no food.
The only water available was filthy.
They are emaciated.
Working with the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office, a warrant was obtained to remove the five horses and three mules from the property.
