Animal Cruelty investigation

(Joint investigation is continuing)….County Sheriff’s and Animal Control are looking into a report of animal cruelty.

Investigators are asking for public assistance for any information surrounding the case. Earlier this month Animal Control and the Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of dead horses. When they arrived at the location near Worthington and Cooley Roads, they found 3 dead horses and a fourth alive, but in need of assistance. It was reported there was no food, water or shading on the property in some of the corrals. Investigators say they are currently trying to identify and locate the owners of the horses. Anyone with any information is asked to contact Investigator Justin Bostic at the Sheriff’s Office.
