Horses Found Malnourished, Injured And Dead At Ranch

SIMI VALLEY (KTLA) — Humane society officials in Ventura County are investigating a horse ranch in Simi Valley after animals were found malnourished and injured.

The remains of two horses were also found at the ranch in between Simi Valley and Chatsworth, officials said.

“It’s not right,” said Peggy Lane, an equine hauler. “They don’t ask for this.”

Megan Gaynes of Auction Horses Rescue said her group found horses that were underweight and one that had an open wound.

“This is the worst I’ve ever seen,” Gaynes said. “I’ve never encountered dead animals.”

The group plans to nurse the animals back to health.
