CRYSTAL SPRINGS, Miss.- A couple found 20 dead horses and nearly 100 malnourished, sick or hurt last week in Copiah County.

The Mississippi Board of Animal Health is now working to see if the horses meet state requirements to be sold or adopted after finding those horses living in such bad conditions on Jerry Earl’s property.

The horses were reported by a couple who were thinking of buying Earl’s land in Crystal Springs.  MBAH Health Official, Brigid Elchos told the Clarion Ledger most of the animals were malnourished, sick or hurt when Earls bought them.

Police said initial checks by veterinarians and animal health officials did not call for criminal charges at this time.

Elchos says the board is also ensuring that the horses that need veterinary care are treated and provided with food and water.

The photos of the horses and updates on the situation have been posted on a Facebook page called “Justice for Copiah County Horses.”
