Christina Silvers, Kelton Prisbrey and John Trinity were arrested and charged with felony animal cruelty and improper disposal of a dead animal.  “The horses had not been fed due to their financial inability to purchase food and suspect that the three horses had died from starvation,” Lt. Crouse of the Washington County Sheriff Department said.

The surviving horse, a 2-year-old colt, was seized and taken to Dust Devil Ranch Sanctuary in nearby Cedar City.  He is under a veterinarian’s supervision and is expected to make a full recovery.
