    Police Find 22 Horses Found Dead In Roane County (WV); Malnourishment Suspected Cause Of Death

    Excerpt from article:

    "There were 20 horses still alive. Roane County sheriff's deputies spent the day on the farm on Saturday and seized those horses, and they are being kept at the old Spencer Livestock market, which is now closed. A deputy is taking care of the horses, but the department is asking for help to get feed and hay."

    Ugh So sad. Where I grew up there was a pony that was kept across the street that looked like them, scrawny. No one would help it I would sneak over and give it feed.
