8 sick horses removed from central Pa. farm
Question of the Day
FAWN GROVE, Pa. (AP) - Eight horses have been removed from a central Pennsylvania farm and animal welfare officials say their owner will face animal neglect charges.
The horses were removed from a property near Fawn Grove after York County Humane Society officials were called to the property and said some of the animals were hundreds of pounds underweight.
The owner of the horses voluntarily relinquished their care to the York County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
York County SPCA executive director Melissa Smith said the horses are very thin and suffering from hoof problems, skin disease and open wounds. A ninth horse - a 4-month-old foal - was found dead.
Several local farms are fostering a few of the horses, while others went to one of two area animal rescues.
