Authorities are removing more than a dozen emaciated horses from a property in rural Logan County, the AP reports. Chief Deputy Rob Groseclose tells Oklahoma City television station KWTV that the department received a tip over the weekend about suspected horse abuse on the property. When authorities arrived, they discovered 105 horses that appeared to be malnourished.
Groseclose says detectives also saw several skeletal remains on the property. Groseclose says a veterinarian visited the property Sunday and determined that 15 of the horses needed immediate medical attention, but one of the animals died overnight. The 14 horses are being removed Monday, and authorities plan to monitor the remaining horses as the investigation continues. Detectives are still trying to determine who owns the horses.
