LINDALE - Deborah Dobbs with the S.P.C.A in East Texas is one of the many people who made their way to a pasture in Lindale early Wednesday morning. Rescuers found around 50 starved horses, and about a dozen skeletal remains.
Rescuers say, they found one colt that couldn't stand any longer and collapsed last week. The owner told rescuers, she believed she was taking good care of her animals.
For now the horses are finding a new home as rescuers move them to temporary shelter where they will be check by a team of veterinarians and given any necessary immediate medical care.
Rescuers say they are pushing forward with charges against the owner but, they say going through the legal process could take some time.
