TOM GREENWOOD reporting for the Detroit News writes:
“Early Tuesday afternoon members of the Michigan Humane Society, Detroit Animal Rescue and the Detroit Police Department rescued 10 neglected horses from a crumbling cinderblock warehouse on the city’s west side.
“The horses, some with heavily matted fur, protruding ribs and neglected hooves, were confined in a warehouse with broken windows and a sagging ceiling.
“The only apparent food was a few mounds of hay heaped on a muddy floor.
“Peaceful and trusting, the animals were led past heaps of debris to trailers which took them to a facility run by the International League for the Protection of Horses.”
