Authorities were in Livingston County rescuing a dozen horses after officials accused the owners of neglect.
Officers from Livingston County Animal Control, along with members of the Michigan Horse Welfare Coalition, are at the farm near Howell, rounding them up and removing them from the property.
This shouldn't come as a surprise to the owners. A spokesperson for the coalition says county officials have been on the case for months and tried to work with the woman to properly care for the animals.
Owner Velva Jean Wainscott had complaints filed that she was not feeding or taking care of them. Wainscott now faces felony charges for animal neglect.
Neighbors say they've been trying to get help for these horses for years and have called animal control to report wainscott before. "Sometimes they get fed and sometimes they don't. She had one of them by the house that was nothing but a rack of bones and it just disappeared," said neighbor Kenneth Kieper.
The first stop for the horses will be an equine center in Fowlerville, where doctors and animal experts will assess them, rehabilitate them, and nurse them back to health.
"They get water whenever they need it, and they get fed once or twice a day, depending on how cold the temperature is. There's nothing wrong with these horses!" said Wainscott.
Officials found part of an animal skeleton in the horse pasture. They have not confirmed whether or not it belonged to a horse. Wainscott has had horses seized from her before, but regained custody each time.
