Scores of neglected horses seized from Oregon property


TERREBONNE, Ore. — Sheriff’s deputies and volunteers seized 83 horses from a property in Central Oregon.

Deschutes County officials tell KTVZ that many of the animals had signs of hoof neglect. They were moved from the property in Terrebonne to an animal-rescue ranch in southeast Bend.

A requested welfare check brought deputies to the property late Saturday, and removal of the horses began Sunday. It took nearly 12 hours to move them all.

The rescue came a little more than a week after the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office seized 53 dogs from a breeder’s property in La Pine.
