SEQUIM, Wash. - The Clallam County Sheriff's Office needs help caring for a group of neglected horses.

Officers found 15 starving and malnourished horses near Sequim on Thursday.

The Sheriff s Office says two of the horses were estimated to be 50 pounds underweight and the rest 100 to 200 pounds underweight.

All of the horses were seized and held by the Sheriff's Department.

An investigative report will be forwarded to the prosecutor for complete review and consideration of charges. State Law requires providing the horse owner 15 days to request the return of the horses. If no request is made or the court denies the return of the animals or orders forfeiture of the animals, the Sheriff's Department will place them with rescue organizations.
