Clintonville--Animal lovers are outraged over what appears to be neglected horses in Waupaca County. The horses in question are located just south of Clintonville on Highway 45. Waupaca County officers are taking the investigation to the next level.
Neighbors have taken to social media as a last resort, to plead their case. They are posting pictures of what they say are abused animals and they got the attention of Waupaca County Police.
A 3rd veterinarian was brought in to check on the horses health. The first vet was called to the scene on July 24, and gave the horses a clean bill of health. The second vet agreed that the aging mare is more than 30 years old and struggling to keep on weight because she is missing teeth.
Waupaca County officials have filed abatement papers with the 71-year-old owner, outlining what needs to be done to care for the animals.
The Waupaca County police plan to release a statement on the findings of their investigation. Then we will know what, if anything, is to be done about the horses.
