Malnourished horses seized near Colorado Springs

By Bob Silbernagel

The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region seized five horses — three adults and two foals — from two different private owners in Fountain this week.

Details about the owners weren't available, but the Humane Society said that although they agreed to turn the horses over to the animal welfare group, they will still face animal cruelty charges.

The statement from the Humane Society was a little confusing, say the society "executed a warrant and seized five horses." I assume it did so with the assistance of law enforcement authorities, because nonprofit organizations don't generally have the authority to execute warrants on their own.

In any event, it appears the horses were in bad shape, as evidenced by this photo from the Humane Society website. Here's hoping they'll be restored to health and find good adoptive homes.
