Horses Starving in British Columbia Owned by Veterinarians

Five horses allegedly found starving at a ranch in Langley, British Columbia, Canada, were seized on Friday (Dec. 10), according to a report on ctvbc.ctv.ca. One horse was euthanized after the owners tried to use the emaciated horse to pull a stuck car out of a ditch.

The local Society for the Prevention of Cruety to Animals stated that the owners are veterinarians. That group is recommending charges be filed against the couple.

The Web site also has video clips of the horses.
