Sick Horses. The State Steps In

(WYTHE COUNTY) – A case of animal abuse in Wythe County continues.

Two horses are euthanized and seven others moved from Fort Chiswell Stables…this after an investigation by the state’s office of veterinary services.

Officials say they got word of the problem over the summer. One mare was thin and had an abnormality on its hips. A second mare was blind. The rest were in better condition but still had problems…mostly concerning malnutrition from illness.
