96 horses found dead on ND ranch, 119 others seized

Author:

Morton County Sheriff's Department officials in central North Dakota seized custody of 119 horses after they found 96 others dead at a ranch over the weekend, the Bismarck Tribune reports.

Of the horses found alive, some will be cared for there, and others will be removed, Sheriff Dave Shipman told the newspaper.

The Morton County State's Attorney's Office will review the case for possible charges, the newspaper reported. Shipman said the property owner has a “soft heart” for horses and has been caring for them in his retirement, the Tribune says.

“My personal opinion is he just got in way, way over his head,” the sheriff said. “He is cooperating with us, and he realizes that there is a problem.”
