Montgomery County Animal Watch: Allegation of horse neglect is puzzling

POOLESVILLE, Sugarland Road, 15000 block, Feb. 14. Investigating an allegation that five horses were being neglected, animal services found that the animals were in excellent condition, wearing blankets that protected them from the weather, and had access to food, water and shelter. When asked why someone would make such an allegation, the horses’ owner said that an argument with someone earlier in the week might have been the catalyst.

Among cases received by the Montgomery County Animal Services Division.
