Stanly County, NC (WBTV) - Two neglected horses along with two dogs were removed from a residence in Stanfield on Monday.

The Stanfield Police Department along with Stanly County Animal Control served a warrant after complaints had been filed about malnourished and injured horses on August 27.

Officers seized two horses along two dogs that were surrendered.

Both horses were severely malnourished.  One suffered extensive injuries to the right hind quarters while the second horse had a deep and severe laceration to the right hind leg.

All animals have been turned over to the Stanly County Humane Society for further medical treatment and will remain with them until further disposition from the Courts.
