Harrison Co. Horses Seized In Animal Neglect Investigation

Posted: Updated:

An animal neglect investigation is underway after neighbors called authorities when four Harrison County horses wandered outside their fence.

When investigators made their way to the farm, they ended up seizing every animal on the property. Officers say the other animals on the Hendricks Lane farm were living with no shelter food or water. Two of the horses required immediate medical attention due to malnourishment.

The owner, who asked that her name be withheld, said the entire incident was a misunderstanding. She says that the icy weather made it difficult to get to her animals but she was still caring for them.

"These horses are my children I do have a child in college, but these animals are just my children,” says the owner.

The owner tells LEX 18 that she was on her way to bring the animals food and water when she wrecked her truck.
