News 10 follow-up: Animal neglect case in Parke County

PARKE COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) – An update for you on a story you saw first on News 10 – a case of animal neglect under investigation in Parke County.

The sheriff’s department responded to the property more than a week ago after two people say they found a dead horse and another under-weight pony.

News 10 visited the property and saw the pony that experts agree is under-weight.

The Parke County Sheriff’s Department confirmed Tuesday afternoon they are investigating the incident, the possible issues of animal neglect and the property as a whole.

The State Board of Animal Health visited the horse and noted no signs of neglect. That veterinarian will continue to check on the animal as part of the investigation.

Witnesses shared photos with us of a deceased animal as well. That animal was removed when our crews visited the area.
