Okanogan County Sheriff’s deputies removed eight horses from a field near Wauconda on Tuesday after determining they were not 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.
When deputies arrived on Tuesday, the animals had no food or water, he said. Some of them had cuts and bruises, and one had an injured leg, he said.
Rogers said the horses were taken to a nearby ranch, and a veterinarian will look them over today or Thursday.
A report will be sent to the prosecutor to determine whether to charge the father or son with animal cruelty, he said.

Weather: We hope you saw that beautiful sunrise this morning. Temperature-wise, some folks (like our executive editor…) say the best temperature for Seattle is the mid-70s, so the next six days will be golden. It’s no heat wave, but we can live with it. As we’ve said before, when that chart over there says “partly cloudy,” we take that to mean “partly sunny.” We hope you agree. The National Weather Service forecast.
Traffic: The map and cams.
Starbucks/funeral-home combo: A South Carolina funeral home is going to make paying your respects to a departed one a bit different by attaching a Starbucks next door. The owner of the Easly, S.C., home says offering food or coffee to help comfort those who have experienced a loss is a good thing. The Starbucks shop will offer food along with a cup of joe.
Poll: Would you want a zip line in your park? A proposal to put a 5- to 6-acre ropes course and zip-line attraction in West Seattle’s Lincoln Park was nixed yesterday after the community said, “Oh no you’re not!” Would you want a zip line and rope course in your neighborhood park? Take our poll.
Animal cruelty charges. 50 dogs and cats: You might ask why it took them so long. A 57-year-old Spokane woman has been charged with nine counts of animal cruelty after a raid last February found the critters living in small cages, in the dark, in their own urine amidst the general squalor of her tiny home. Workers had to wear respirators and hazardous-material suits to ward off the stench. Animal rescue folks have been receiving complaints about the woman for at least 28 years.
