Farm Animals Abused in Michigan


Dozens of starving horses were rescued today from a Michigan farm.

Animal control was called to this property in rural Jackson County after complaints of horses running wild.

When officers arrived, they found nearly 70 underweight horses, living in dismal conditions without food and water.

About 30 of the mares are pregnant.

Officials are in the process of cleaning up the farm, providing food and water to the animals.

Meanwhile, police are still looking for the farm owners.

James Henderson, Junior and Matthew Mercier both face animal cruelty charges.
