NEW CUMBERLAND, W.Va. -- The Hancock County Sheriff's Department is looking for homes for three horses that were seized in a drug case.Media outlets reported that the horses are among 10 seized earlier this year. Homes were found for the other seven horses.Sheriff Mike White says his department doesn't have a place to house the horses during the winter.
Hancock County dog warden Nicole Busick says the horses could be euthanized as a last resort if no one takes them.
Busick said the horses have special needs because of their previous living conditions. One's growth was severely stunted from a lack of nutrition and growing up in small, confined areas. The others' legs are weak because they didn't get sufficient exercise.
