80 neglected horses rescued from Chesterfield Co. stable

Posted: Updated:
CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

Eighty horses who were not being provided fresh water or proper food were rescued from a Chesterfield County stable in December, according to the Humane Society.

The animal protection group says they received several complaints about the horses and assigned its cruelty investigator, Eddie O'Cain to look into them.

O'Cain ultimately discovered 80 horses were being neglected at the stable and all of them were surrendered to the Humane Society.

Since the surrender, the group has worked with Chesterfield County Animal Services to provide food and water to the animals.

The Humane Society says they have since vetted and placed these horses with their original owners, who plan to move all of them to out-of-state stables.
