CRESWELL, Ore. – Three horses were found dead on a property outside of Creswell according to court documents obtained by KEZI 9 News.

In October, 61 horses were removed from the property after an initial investigation showed they were suffering from severe neglect.

The documents show a horse skull with the rest of the carcass covered by a tarp and two dead animals being covered by dirt. For some perspective, it can take six to 12 months for a horse to decompose.

The documents also show pictures of horses with ribs and hip bones overtly showing.
