WAUCONDA-Authorities in Okanogan County east of the Cascades seized eight underfed horses that reportedly belong to a Gig Harbor man.

The Wenatchee World is reporting that the horses were sezied by authorities after determining that the animals weren't being fed or watered:

Sheriff Frank Rogers said a Gig Harbor man owns the horses, and told authorities he had asked his son who lives in Tonasket to care for them. Deputies left messages for the son, but were unable to reach him.

Neighbors first complained in December that the horses at 251 Toroda Creek Road were not being cared for, and some neighbors have been bringing them food and water, Rogers said.
