OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) - A Winnebago County woman has been arrested after authorities found nearly two dozen animals living in deplorable conditions in the Town of Clayton.
WGBA-TV reports that since Thursday, authorities have rescued 17 horses and five dogs from the home. Winnebago sheriff's detective Chris Braman says they did not look healthy.
Another three horses were found dead.
Cattle Rescue Inc. will be caring for the surviving horses. Director Bill Blemke says they are malnourished.
The dogs went to the Oshkosh Humane Society and are being checked out by a veterinarian.
The 51-year-old woman was in custody on several animal mistreatment charges. Investigators plan to present a case to prosecutors in coming days.
