TOWN OF ONONDAGA, N.Y. -- Central New York SPCA officials and State Police were back in the town of Onondaga on Thursday to round up the remaining five severely neglected horses.
Nine horses that were in very poor condition were already seized from the Bailer Road property on Monday. Seven more were found dead.
The SPCA executive director says the surviving horses are weak, sick, and some are even pregnant. He adds that they do have a possible suspect, but the priority right now is to fight for the future of all 14 horses.
"The objective obviously is to get them all back up to proper condition, get them healthy enough. And also socialize them, as you can see they're very wild. Try to get them a little more socialized so we can then find a place to place them and move them on," said Paul Morgan, SPCA Executive Director.
The charges the possible suspect would face are misdemeanor failure to provide proper care.
