Starke County Prosecutor Considering Charges Against Horse Owner


Criminal charges could be filed against the owner of several horses found loose on Wednesday.

The Starke County Sheriff’s Office was notified the animals were out in the area of 200 South and 550 East. Neighbors corralled the horses and put them back into the fenced area provided by their owner. A news release from the sheriff’s office indicates a report has been forwarded to the prosecutor due to the apparent lack of food and condition of the animals.
