LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Nearly 50 horses were found dead on a northern Kentucky farm.
The farm's owner says he didn't do anything wrong.
The discovery was made at a farm in Pendleton County this week. Another 15 horses were found in bad health.
Larry Browning, the farm's owner, claims that other people have been dropping off unhealthy animals and said he was just trying to help them.
"They've charged me with abuse to horses, which is not true," Browning said. "There was hay at that ridge all the time. Every neighbor will vouch for me. I feed my horses good. I don't know why you wouldn't feed them, because if you don't, you don't get anything for them."
Animal control officers were called to the farm several years ago, and had to euthanize 10 horses.
All of the horses on Browning's farm are now being sold or moved to farms around the state.
