Emaciated horse's owner sought after animal abandoned in Acres Homes

HOUSTON – A starving horse was found Thursday in northwest Houston.

Deputies with Harris County Precinct 1 said the horse was tied up to a post and abandoned in the Acres Homes area. The sorrel, or chestnut-colored stallion, was abandoned for a week, deputies said. Residents believe the horse may have been abandoned for closer to a month.

The male horse was taken in for care by the Houston SPCA and will be treated for malnutrition and a maggot infestation in a foot wound. There is also a sore on his leg. 

Anyone with information about the horse is asked to call deputies at 832-927-1633.
