FALMOUTH, Ky. (AP) -- A Pendleton County man has been cited after animal control officers removed 49 horse carcasses and 15 emaciated horses from his farm.
Kentucky State Police said they cited Larry Browning with 49 counts of not disposing of an animal carcass in 48 hours and 15 counts of cruelty to animals.
Browning told The Kentucky Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1kr9fGm) that people drop horses off at his farm and he is left to deal with them. He said he had done nothing wrong.
Browning told police that he had planned to sell the animals to either private owners or slaughterhouses outside the U.S. by May.
