Deschutes County Sheriff's deputies arrested a 31 year old Redmond man on 23 counts of animal neglect. Authorities confiscated 23 horses and four steers from Jeremy Watson’s home in Redmond and another residence on Northeast 13th Street. Lt. Shane Nelson is with the Sheriff's Department: “These horses were malnourished and there are varying degrees of malnutrition. Four steers did not have access to potable water and that concerned us.” All the animals were transported to the County's Large Animal Rescue Facility. Officers have been working with Jeremy Watson for three to four months to improve his care of the horses and steers.
