28 neglected thoroughbred horses under the care of the Crook County Sheriff's Office are facing an uncertain future. Authorities say it's come down to two options: find them a new home or send them to slaughter. County Assistant Legal Counsel Eric Blaine tells our news partner, News Channel 21 that the county does not have the funds to care for the animals in perpetuity, so they need to decide how to handle the situation. A single neglect case has already cost the Sheriff's Office more than $20,000 and countless hours. The horses are now up for adoption. Contact the Crook County Sheriff's Office for more details.
