More neglected horses seized in North Dakota

BISMARCK — Authorities in Burleigh County seized 38 horses from a man on the same day officials in neighboring Morton County took 119 horses away from him.

Ninety-six dead horses were discovered on the Morton County property and three dead horses were found on the Burleigh County land. The horses that survived the alleged neglect are being fed and cared for onsite, except for 25 that are in bad shape and being cared for by a horse rescue organization.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that the owner of the horses has not been identified because he has not been arrested. Prosecutors are considering charges.
