(WXYZ) - Twelve horses have been seized by Livingston County Animal Control after receiving calls that the animals were not being properly cared for.
"We have been out numerous times this summer on complaints of no food and no water. We got here this morning and there was no water and no food," says Debbie Oberle, director of Livingston Co. Animal Control.
Investigators say Jean Wainscott was charged with neglect of the animals on Wednesday.
Wainscott told 7 Action News the horses are fine and believes animal control is just showing off its power by removing the horses.
"They're wrong," says Wainscott.
The horses will be checked out by veterinarians and sent to different rescue groups while the case plays out in court.
Wainscott says this has happened before and she got her horses back.
She believes she'll get the horses back again this time.
