Officers with the Oregon Humane Society and Columbia County Sheriff’s Office have seized 15 horses in Clatskanie, Oregon. Officials were called to the property by a witness who saw 2 horses down, and possibly in serious condition. A search warrant was served and officials found a dead horse and many seriously neglected horses. The horses were thin and one had numerous sores on its body from constant exposure to the elements or from laying down excessively. The horses were taken to a private location and are not available for adoption or visiting at this time.
The owner(s) of the horses, who Oregon Humane Society refuses to release their information pending investigation, plead guilty to 1st degree animal neglect in 2014. Oregon Humane Society nor law enforcement have not issued citations or arrest warrants at this time.
