Horses seized from East Durham home, owner charged

From N.Y.S. Encon officers:

Horse Neglect Arrest - Greene County

On May 20, ECO Anthony Glorioso responded to a location in the town of Durham after receiving a tip that horses were being neglected.

On scene, ECO Glorioso found that two of the four horses had extremely long hooves, approximately 10 inches long, and one of the horses was unable to stand.

Two days later, ECO Glorioso returned to the location with SPCA investigators, who agreed that the conditions of the two horses were unacceptable and warranted criminal charges.

ECO Glorioso arrested the owner and charged him with two counts of a Class A misdemeanor for failing to provide sustenance to horses. Responding officers estimate that these horses have not been seen by a farrier in two years.

Columbia Greene Humane Society officials say this was at a private residence on Route 145. They also provided the second picture below.
