The Owners really need to be charged...That was a very sad sight..... Dont take animals just because they are free to you if you are not gonna care for them.

It takes months for a horse to starve to death. It's disgusting that they were treated that way, and for so long... and equally as disgusting that nobody turned the owners in sooner.

I hope these people get put away.... This is so sad no animal should have to live or die this way. There are rescues and charities these people could of called. This breaks my heart. I try to not wish bad things on people...but.....

Yes times are tough... But then don't have animals. It takes a couple phone calls to find these animals homes. Like another stated...why wasn't this called in earlier!!! Sick!!!

Good job Albemarle police. Takes alot of hard work to seize dead horses. Good thing you guys got their after they died, because who wants to do paperwork on seized live horses. WTF?

Hard to believe the powers that be have to CONSIDER pressing charges against the people who let these animals starve to death. Let me help in the decision making process: Throw the book at them now!

You are oh so correct. For a town like this there is no real excuse for the degree of ineptitude on the part of 29.

Stories like this are always shocking to hear!! The problem is the system as a horse owner and someone who has seen crazy thing at differents farms there is nothing that can be done for a animal that we might feel is "neglected" as long as the owner is providing food, water, and shelter for a horse there is nothing that the police can do. I feel that needs to change expecially when stories like this come out.
