Sick horses seized from Pierce Co. property

GRAHAM -- Dozens of horses were seized Wednesday from a Pierce County property where authorities said they were living in squalid conditions.
The Pierce County Sheriff's Department took 39 sick or starving horses from the property in Graham. Among the horses recovered were a dozen Arabians and some stallions.
Animal Control officers served a search warrant in response to another law enforcement agency's concerns. Authorities said many of the horses were thin and some had injuries, and most were living in barns that had large amounts of urine and feces.
All were to be removed and taken to an undisclosed location for veterinary care.
The animal owners could face charges of animal cruelty in the second degree, which is a gross misdemeanor.
