Three horses confiscated from Berlin Center property

Posted: Updated:

BERLIN CENTER, Ohio - An anonymous complaint to Humane Agents has resulted in the seizure of three horses.

The horses were confiscated from a Berlin Center property on South Pricetown Road.

A neighbor who didn't want to be identified told our reporter she hadn't seen anyone caring for the animals for months.

"I got concerned and come over a couple days ago and oh brother. It's pitiful. How anybody can let a horse go like that," said the neighbor.

Humane Agents on scene were limited in what they could tell us. Although they say the horses do not belong to the property owner.

"They (the horses) are not good, you know they are a little skinny," said Humane Agent with Animal Charity Kymberly Woodburn.

Woodburn referred further questions to Animal Charity's Executive Director. The Executive Director could not be reached for comment. 

21 News contacted the property owner, who explained the previous occupants of the home rented the barn out to a third party. When the occupants moved out, the property owner continued to lease the barn to the third party. The owner says, the woman renting the barn has not paid rent in 6 months. The phone number they have for the woman is no longer in service and several notes in attempt to reach her were left on the barn doors. 

The confiscated horses have been taken to Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary in Ravenna where they will be seen by a vet.
