Horses in Neglect Case to Be Sold


Dozens of horses and cows connected to a big animal neglect case in Crook County will be sold off next week, on Monday. Sgt. James Savage says the sale is similar to how a foreclosure would be handled: on the Courthouse steps, and they are looking for one buyer of the 55 horses and 22 cows. He says thanks to donations of cash, hay, and vet services the horses and cows are doing much better today. But its been tough on everyone: “55 horses and 22 cows.  We're a small agency and its been very taxing on the County and Sheriff's Office, but thanks to the generosity of people in the community we've been able to maintain the care that they've needed and the feed.” Savage says back in 2009 when this happened before; they spent more than $100,000 to get the horses healthy again. And in that case, fewer animals were seized.
