Animal Control and Emergency Management assisted by Kentucky State Police seized 14 emaciated horses out of 35 animals on a north Kentucky farm on the 2200 block Ky177, Monday reported fox19.com.

Authorities state there wasn't enough hay to feed all 84 animals.

The horses were transferred to an undisclosed location in Kenton County for medical evaluation and rehabilitation.

An anonymous tip about dead horses led authorities to the farm owned by Larry Browning, where, in addition to the other horses, 49 dead horses were discovered.

Browning has been charged with 14 counts of second degree animal cruelty. He has also been charged with not disposing of animal carcasses within 48 hours. More charges are possible once necropsies determine the reasons the other horses died.

Browning has owned the property for 20 years and is reported to be a horse trader. His first court appearance is scheduled for April 15.

According to News 12 wkrc.com, neighbors also state Browning has always been a responsible person who put out hay and grain everyday for horses. They told authorities that people often dropped their horses off at Browning's property because they knew he would care for the animals.
