Evangeline Parish sheriff's deputies are searching for the owners of two horses--one dead and the other one in terrible condition--that they say were neglected and abandoned.
Investigators say they received a call earlier this week about the horses after someone saw them in a field off Stage Coach Road near Bayou Chicot.
"They were in very bad condition," said Captain Mike Perry of the Evangeline Parish Sheriff's Office. "there was one lying on side the road and couldn't stand. The other one was dead in the field."
Perry added that detectives are working to find the horses' owner(s). He adds that criminal charges are pending the outcome of the investigation.
If you have any information about this case, call the Evangeline Parish Sheriff's Office at 337-363-2161.
