TROY, AL (WSFA) - Troy Police say a woman is in custody connected with an animal cruelty incident involving horses in Troy.
Troy Police were contacted by a horse owner who said his animals were abused after he left them in the care of another person. The man said he left three horses with an acquaintance while he went overseas. When he returned he found two of his horses very malnourished and near death. A third horse, which belonged to his son, died due to malnutrition.
An investigation revealed that the suspect had other horses on their property at this time - those horses were removed from the suspect's property.

A veterinarian has been asked to check and treat the remaining horses seized from Sessions' property on Pike County Road 2294.
