(Lorimor) The Animal Rescue League says they have rescued a half dozen injured and malnourished horses from a Union County property.
Authorities say the horses were being neglected and were confined to less than one-acre of land in the Union County town of Lorimar. The horses were taken to the Rescue Ranch in Des Moines. The Rescue League is a non-profit organization that houses 19,000 animals from all four corners of the state.
An Animal Rescue League investigator says the horses had been without food, shelter or medical care for an unknown amount of time. When the horses recover they will go up for adoption.
