PLEASANT PRAIRIE, Wis. - Nearly two dozen horses that were kept in deplorable conditions in Kenosha County have been nursed back to health and are ready for adoption.
A Kenosha News report said the horses and other animals can be adopted starting Wednesday.
The horses were taken from a Pleasant Prairie farm whose owners have pleaded not guilty to animal mistreatment. Prosecutors said the carcasses of 55 horses, 12 goats and two cows were found on their farm.
The surviving animals were on the verge of starvation, and some had scars from harnesses left on too long.
The adoptions are being managed through the village of Pleasant Prairie. The animals include 23 horses, 20 ducks, seven sheep, a bull and a peacock.
