Twenty-One Horses Found Starving At A Southern Kentucky Home

A southern Kentucky man is in jail after officials find over twenty starving horses at his home.

Police arrested 54 year old Jerry Campbell of Rockcastle County and charged him with 21 counts of second degree cruelty to animals.

Officers say they think the horses were probably not property fed for months and that five of them died.

They say it looks like Campbell was trying to care for too many of the animals at once.

The Rockcastle County Animal Shelter is accepting donations to help care for the animals.
