College Station, Texas – A pair of horses rescued from flood water during Hurricane Harvey are being sent to auction by the Brazos County Sheriff department. The Sheriff has been unable to locate the owner.

The horses were rescued on August 27 from drowning by members of the fire department.  “The College Station Fire Department did a great job of taking care of themselves and getting the horses out safely. Both horses have been checked out by our doctors, both have minor abrasions from being in the debris, but they’re going to do fine,”  Dr. Leslie Easterwood, with Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine said.

A month later, the Sheriff department has still been unable to locate the horses owner(s) and the horses will be auctioned today at noon at the Livestock Commission in Bryan.  The sheriff has stated the horses will not be available for adoption before the auction.
