CHALLIS, Idaho (AP) - The Bureau of Land Management is asking for the public’s help finding whoever abandoned two horses in Custer County.

KTVB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1RyyNOc ) that the horses were found starving and neglected south of Challis on Oct. 16.

Rangers were able to wrangle the horses and take them to a veterinarian for treatment. They were suffering from extreme malnutrition and dehydration and showed signs of physical abuse. One of the horses died less than 12 hours after its rescue. The other horse has been gaining weight and is expected to recover.

BLM officials are working to track down whoever abandoned the horses. That person could be charged with cruelty to animals, among other charges.
