FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - A North Pole man faces animal cruelty charges after four severely malnourished horses were found on his property.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports (https://is.gd/KBT3pQ) charges were filed Friday against Thomas Patrick Fisher. Alaska State Troopers began investigating after four horses were reported loose July 2 and seized by authorities the next day.

A veterinarian’s report says the horses were malnourished and in poor to very poor condition due to abuse and neglect. Troopers say they couldn’t find any horse feed on Fisher’s property, and one hose had a leg wound so severe it couldn’t put any weight on it.

Online court records didn’t list an attorney for him and his home phone wasn’t operating correctly Wednesday.

Fisher had a business license until 2009 for a venture called “Alaska Horseback Guides.”
