Hardin County residents raise concerns about malnourished horses
About half a dozen horses in Hardin County aren't being fed. That's what neighbors are saying, but the Hardin County sheriff's deputies say the animals do have food and shelter.
Neighbors said six horses on a property on Hook Lane Road just outside of Silsbee are victims of neglect and abuse.
Hardin County deputies say it's not true.
They say the animals do look malnourished, but not enough to be seized.
Deputies say the horses could have better living conditions, but their hands are tied.
They say as long as there is food and water present, there's not much else that could be done.
Neighbors are taking matters into their own hands and bringing food to the horses to help get them back to normal weight.
