Goshen, New York – Neighbors became extremely concerned when 4 horses disappeared from a pasture in rural Goshen.  After receiving complaints, a judge issued a search warrant and officers headed to the property to investigate.

The officers were shocked to find the 4 horses dead, starved to death, inside a barn.  All four horses were locked in stalls, presumably with automatic waters, and had gnawed on the pressure treated wood trying to stay alive.  One of the deceased horses was pregnant.

When reporters with News12 went to the property, they spoke with a women there taking care of other horses.  She refused to say much, but did say it was a dispute between herself and her adult son.

Town officials and SPCA state the owner of the deceased horses is under investigation and they expect charges to be filed.
