14 horses are now up for adoption in Beaufort County after being seized from their owner.
According to Beaufort County Manager Paul Spruill the horses were seized from an Aurora man a couple of weeks ago after a trial. Spruill tells us during that trial the owner was not convicted of a crime but the judge did make the owner hand them over. Spruill says they were living in poor conditions.
Right now the horses are being houses at two undisclosed locations for their protection.
Beaufort County Animal Control is accepting applications for the horses right now. Those applications need to be in by July 23rd. You can see pictures of the horses at the shelter.
