Officials See Vast Improvement In Vanceboro Horses

Animal control and equine rescue officials were back at a Vanceboro farm in Craven County Monday where twelve horses have already been removed. Those horses were found emaciated, with their ribs showing and desperate for food in late June. Twenty-nine horses still remain on the farm. Officials were back to evaluate the health of these horses, and to determine if charges will be filed against the owner. What they found was a vast improvement, new feed, clean water and proper living conditions. Bob Busher with Craven County Animal Control says as of right now, no charges will be filed against owner Judy Nichols.
