Animal control officers continued to remove horses Thursday from a farm in rural Jessamine County where 70 horses were found Wednesday. Officers say the horses were all starving and neglected.
Some of the horses were removed Wednesday, the rest were taken from the scene Thursday afternoon.
On Wednesday officials said, on a scale of one to ten with one being the worst, most of the horses would rank a 1.5. The owner faces 70 counts of animal cruelty and is expected in court next month. Authorities say two other people could also be charged in the case.
The Jessamine County Humane Society says they have been receiving hay, feed and monetary donations. However, it will take great efforts to nurse the horses back to health. If you would like to make a donation you can contact them at 859-887-1577. You can also send donations to:
