BURKE COUNTY, N.C. —
Officials released more information Tuesday about the condition of a dozen horses seized from a farm south of Morganton deputies say are part of an animal cruelty case.
Animal Control officers said the horses that were underweight have been eating constantly since they were taken off a farm on Crawley Higgins Avenue on Monday.
The owner, Bobby Reep, said several of the horses had been rescued from other owners.
According to a search, deputies said the horses were found standing in several inches of feces, and the pastures did not have any grass for them to eat.
So far no charges have been filed in the case.
