HORSES LEFT UNATTENDED IN LINCOLN COUNTY
People who live along Spice Ridge Road in Lincoln County say nobody has been taking care of 40 to 50 horses for more than a month.
Neighbors describe the animals as malnourished and say that they wander around street. They complain nothing is being done to help. "There ain't nobody who wants to claim them, or take care of them, or feed them, or anything else, just letting them run wherever they want to," Jesse Turner said.
The Lincoln County Sheriff says the horses belong to Walter Smith, who used to own the property. Deputies say they have been in contact with Smith and are investigating the allegations.
