Horses rescued

BELMONT COUNTY Humane Officers, with the assistance of the Belmont County Sheriff’s Office, executed a warrant around noon on Sunday and confiscated 11 horses and one miniature donkey from a farm in Powhatan Point.

The officers said the horses were not being properly taken care of, especially during the cold winter months.

Volunteers, who are familiar with horses, came together to help gather the horses.

Belmont County humane officer Mandae Lewis said that some horses were not being fed enough and not being seen by veterinarians.
