MONROE, Wash. (AP) - A woman could be facing animal cruelty charges after Snohomish County animal control investigators rescued three emaciated horses from a property near Monroe.

The Daily Herald of Everett reports (https://bit.ly/1J1uYuq ) that two mares and a filly are in protective custody after being treated by a veterinarian. A concerned person called 911 Saturday to report the animals.

Investigators received a judge’s permission to seize the horses Wednesday. An animal control spokeswoman says the horses were confined in individual stalls, soaked in urine and covered in feces.

The owner is not cooperating with officers. There have been no previous complaints of animal cruelty involving the woman or the property.
