State’s Attorney T.J. Donovan is planning to meet with health and police officials in Shelburne, Vt., to discuss their investigation into the treatment of at least three horses.
A stallion and two mares are being cared for at Spring Hill Horse Rescue in Clarendon after officials said the horses were found in small, dark stalls, standing in manure and surrounded by the remains of deceased horses.
Shelburne Police said the seizure was done at the George Wilson residence. The Burlington Free Press reports attempts to reach Wilson were unsuccessful.
Shelburne Town Health Officer Bob Lake said the owner of the horses agreed to surrender them to rescue group.
Donovan said earlier this month it was too early to say whether neglect or abuse charges were warranted.
