Animals Seized After Dead Horses, Poor Conditions Discovered

Four animals were seized in Wilson County after deputies got complaints about terrible conditions at the property.

WITN obtained home video which shows the property where Wilson
County Animal Enforcement took two horses, a donkey, and a goat. They also found several dead horses and other animals without food or water. They say the home owner on Webb Lake Road, Jonathan Whitley, is facing charges, pending their investigation. Local animal rescue groups say it's too little too late.

911 history reports show 8 calls had been made since January reporting the alleged abuse there. Each time, deputies responded but nothing was done until this week after pictures were sent to the sheriff.
