The Polk County Sheriff’s office is investigating accusations of animal neglect on a farm owned by a Wisconsin family. Milltown Township officials say they found nearly two dozen horses malnourished, and several were dead when they were called to Otter Creek Ranch last week. Polk County Town Chair Harlen Hegdal says it was a disturbing sight. “I knew it had to be serious because the sheriff’s deputy said ‘We need to have you out here ASAP,” Hegdal said. “There were dead horses, there were horses eating their stalls. There were horses just sitting rocking, back and forth.”
