In February of 2017, IHR was notified by the Owyhee County Sheriff of a serious neglect case.  The conditions these animals were forced to live in were devastating.    They were chewing on fence posts from hunger, wading through knee deep feces upon the carcasses of other deceased horses & cattle that had succumbed to the hideous neglect.   It was enough to make the animal control officers weep.
