Horses seized in Harrison County

HARRISON COUNTY, Ohio – The owner of two horses that were seized because of suspected neglect took her concerns to Harrison County Commissioners on Wednesday.
Of the horses, the owner said one was in perfectly fine shape, and the other, she admitted, had a long way to go.
“They just took the horses," owner Gloria Woods said.
The horses are named Sugar and Bunny.
Woods said she's had Bunny for 7 months, and originally she had been seriously neglected.
"Everything we were trying to do wasn’t getting her better,” Woods said.
Bunny was as run down as a horse can get. Statements say the horse had no hair and the parasites were so bad there were sores.
“She's been under vet care since (April 21),” Woods said. “We took her to the vet.”
Harrison County Humane Officer Darla Smith said that's only part of the story.
Smith warned Woods more than 2 months ago about Bunny's condition, and what would happen if it didn't improve.
The horses were seized with two deputies present.
“I have not seen the horses since or heard anything about the horses since,” Woods said.
Woods said she has been dealing with the Attorney General’s Office, trying to get help getting her horses back.
Humane officers though, say, they're following the law and hope to have the case to prosecutors by the end of the week.
