Neglected Horses Seized from Vermilion County Farm

Posted:

MUNCIE- Eleven neglected horses have been seized from a farm in Vermilion County.

The Society For Hooved Animals' Rescue and Emergency (SHARE) in Dewey had been investigating allegations of mistreatment on the farm since August. After neighbors reported that one horse had died this past week, the surviving horses were seized.

The owner, who hasn't been identified, agreed to hand over the horses and is not facing charges. SHARE New Volunteer Coordinator Michelle Kohler says they suspect the woman was hoarding the animals. President Linda Hewerdine says the woman is believed to have mistreated animals for 30 years.

SHARE officials say the surviving horses are in bad shape and are still at-risk of death. The humane society is in-need of donations to help support the horses. Anyone interested in donating may do so at http://www.s-h-a-r-e.net/
