26 horses removed from DeLand Farm

Twenty-six horses were removed last week from a DeLand farm after a complaint was made to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office. Local6.com reports that the owner does not currently face criminal charges, but the sheriff's office is still investigating.

Morgan Silver from the Horse Protection Association of Florida is quoted in the article about the conditions where the horses were being kept: "The stalls are very deep with urine and feces and it is obvious that many of the horses have not been out of the stalls in a long time and it is a pretty bad situation. . . . It is a shame. There is no reason for this to have to happen."
