The seizure of 16 neglected horses in Salem last week highlights a big trend in Marion County. A spokesman for the Sheriff's Office says they've had 7 or 8 big cases like this of horse neglect already this calendar year. In this case, the suspect was also on probation for a 2010 horse neglect conviction here in Deschutes County.  Don Thomson with the Marion County Sheriff's Office: "This is probably the 7th or 8th seizure we've done this year. We've done a lot of them. We've been trying to put owners in contact with rescue agencies trying to get them in touch with a hay bank, trying to get them in touch with rescue blankets, trying to help people. I mean the last thing we want to do is seize their horses." The former Deschutes County woman convicted of horse neglect in 2010 is facing new charges animal neglect after authorities seized 16 horses. Marion County Sheriff's Officials say Gabriel Buckner is held on $20,000 bail and is scheduled to be in court on May 17th.
