Last Friday, 21 horses and one dead dog, were discovered inside of a corral on abandoned property in Wake County, North Carolina. As reported by ABC 11 News, the authorities have identified a person of interest and determined the cause of death for the animals. After testing was completed on four of the deceased horses, Wake County Animal Control determined that they had died from starvation.
It has been determined that the woman who owned the property off of Fanny Brown Road is dead, but the authorities have identified an individual as a person of interest. The identity of that individual has not been publicly released.
When the horrific discovery was made last week, one survivor was found – a dog, in poor condition, was still clinging to life. That dog has been taken to the Wake County Animal Shelter for care.
