LOCAL GROUP RESCUES HORSES AFTER OREGON ANIMAL NEGLECT, ABUSE CASE
A Cave Junction, Oregon woman is charged with 22 counts of second-degree animal neglect and 17 counts of second-degree animal abuse after Josephine County officials seized 257 animals from her property just off Route 199. Sheriff’s officials say the case involving 61-year-old Kandi Lucile Crow is one of the worst cases of animal hoarding they’ve ever seen. The county took 177 miniature horses and various other animals from Crow in mid-September, and to recuperate the $293,000 they’ve spent for caring for the animals the county held an auction this weekend in Grants Pass.
It had a group of local women with a passion for horses teaming up to help rescue a few of those miniatures. They put their own money and some community raised funds down to bring back 6 horses. They’re safe and being cared for now at “Kilby Kountry” in Eureka. Kelly May caught up with the group as they’ve been dealing with a few surprises after the rescue.
