Horses allowed to starve are taken in by Rescue Network

The type of starvation suffered by the horses on a South Carolina property off Folly Road has brought the founder of Livestock and Equine Awareness and Rescue Network, Elizabeth Steed, to the verge of tears. She was called to the property to check on the horses and to pick them up on Thursday, Dec. 12.

Steed says that the horses would have been severely neglected for three-and-a-half, four months to get into this poor condition. Perhaps their health has been deteriorating for much longer. They have not been vaccinated and have other health problems. One horse has a serious eye ulcer.

Steed told Live5News,

They have to get in our care immediately. These animals are critical. In another five to seven days these animals aren't going to be alive.

The owner of the property where the horses were found claims the animals are not his. He says they belong to the man who rents the next-door property. According to what he says, the horses graze on his land and he does what he can to take care of them.

Charleston County animal control issued a fine of $1092 fine for each horse to the property owner.
