7 Horses Found Dead In Clark County Farm, Others Barely Alive

Authorities say 13 horses were barely alive and seven others were found dead on a farm on Irvine Road, in Clark County.

The county attorney has charged the owner with 20 counts of cruelty to animals. The owner of the farm, Linville Davis, says he's shocked by the allegations and says his horses were always fed.

Davis says he doesn't know what killed the horses that were found dead on the property.

Davis will be arraigned on the charges Monday. Authorities tells us the horses were taken to a local veterinarian.

    Look at this white horse, does it look feed to you. It doesn't to me. I think drugs is the reason people are not feeding their horses.

    IF YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO FEED THEM AND CAN'T GIVE THEM AWAY TO BETTER HOMES--THEN OPEN THE PASTURE GATES AND LET THEM GO. THEY WILL FIND THEIR OWN FOOD.

    They need to take these people who don'tthink this is such and issue out and clean up the dead horses and care for the starving ones, it's like taking a teenager to see there friend at the morgue after they were killed drinking and driving, we need some shock treatment, some people are too far removed from the fact that this is a reality, horses are starving at an unbelievable rate. These anti slaughter, tree huggers should be ashamed and should have to go without food for a month.

    They better hire Stephen Ownens in Pike County, Kentucky if they want out of it and give him plenty of money and he can get them 6 months and they will walkk away free, like he did the others and take their money and forget everyone elses case to get this one.
