Sheriff's dept. checks on horses’ welfare

On Wednesday, Sept. 6, the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department responded to several complaints of possible animal neglect at 3455N SR 9, near Howe.

Upon arrival, all animals on the property were inspected by the state veterinarian and appeared to satisfy all state veterinarian requirements. Adequate water supply and food source were located on the property, along with adequate medical and health care requirements being administered to the animals on the property.

The property owner was cooperative and forthcoming with information pertaining to all the animals on the property and a follow-up visit will be done by the state veterinarian at a later time to verify the property owner is maintaining adequate care for all the animals on the property.
