31 horses rescued in Ottawa County cruelty case

OAK HARBOR — Authorities are investigating an animal cruelty case in Ottawa County that involves the extreme undernourishment of 31 horses and the death of six others.

The remaining horses have been rescued and moved over the last couple days, said Nancy Silva, humane officer for Ottawa County.

The horses were transported to the Sandusky County fairgrounds in Fremont, where dozens of humane officials and volunteers were caring for them Saturday afternoon.

The animals were rescued from a stable in the Oak Harbor area.

Six horses have died from the neglect and there were 37 horses originally, Ms. Silva said.

No charges have been filed in the case, authorities said.
