HOWELL (WWJ) – The Michigan Horse Welfare Coalition assisted Livingston County Animal Control with the removal and care of 12 horses from alleged starvation conditions at a farm near Howell.
Jodi Louth is a volunteer coordinator with the Coalition. She tells WWJ’s Gary Lundy, they have also discovered one dead horse on the farm:
“Many of them were severely emaciated, many needed urgent medical care … there was a horse skeleton found on the property,” said Louth.
Louth says they hope to rehabilitate the horses, and eventually put them up for adoption. No word yet if the owner of the farm will face any criminal charges for neglecting the horses.
