Animals Seized from Marshall County Farm Sold at Auction

Marshall County

More than two dozen neglected horses and cattle that were seized from a farm have found new homes.

Media outlets report that 22 horses and 10 cattle were sold at a public auction on Tuesday at the Marshall County Courthouse.

Authorities seized the animals from a farm south of Cameron earlier this year. Police say the animals lacked food and water and were in poor physical condition. There also were decaying animal remains on the property.

The successful bidders included local farm families who cared for the animals after they were seized.
