This happened from just down the road from where I live. I am appalled that someone kept animals in such atrocious conditions. Some of the comments from local websites suggest that this farm was known for its bad treatment of animals. Why wasn't anything done sooner? Horses were housed so close together that some of them were standing on other dead horses!
If you don't take care of animals in your care whose main aim in life is to please their owner/master, then you deserve to rot for your neglect.
