DARLINGTON, Wis. -

The Lafayette County man accused of animal neglect appeared in court Monday.

Officials filed charges against Sean Legault last week for allegedly underfeeding horses at his home.

Authorities seized those 12 horses from his home in the town of Wiota after a veterinarian determined they were underfed.

The 55-year-old posted a $1,000 bond and is due back in court for arraignment next week.
