DARLINGTON, WI (WTAQ) - A southwest Wisconsin man is due in court in Monday for allegedly neglecting a dozen horses.
55-year-old Sean Legault of rural South Wayne is charged in Lafayette County with a misdemeanor count of not properly disposing animal carcasses. He also faces a citation for not providing sufficient food for animals.
Sheriff's officials said 11 of Legault's horses were seized and taken to another farm this week. Another horse was in the process of being subdued, and authorities said they found a dead horse in a pasture.
Authorities said they were called by people concerned that the animals were not getting hay to eat.
