CLINTONVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - The heads of five horses were found by Waupaca County authorities on the property of a Clintonville woman charged with neglecting five other animals.
WSAW-TV reports that 71-year-old Barbara Thiry is facing 15 counts tied to neglect.
According to the criminal complaint, the five horses tied to the neglect were between 2 and 26-years-old. Authorities found them to be malnourished without access to food, water or shelter.
Now investigators say based on an interview with a man who purchased Thiry's Kewaunee County farm, four horse heads were found inside the house and a fifth was discovered behind the barn.
The man also says he found a horse carcass under four-feet of manure inside the barn.
