Starving Horses Rescued (Video included)

If you would please go to this link, watch the video and leave a comment telling them how you feel about this disgusting crime. This is unacceptable.

Starving Horses Rescued by Humane Society
(the following is taken from the above link)
PRICHARD, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Hunger isn't normally something that can be seen, but when bones protrude it cannot be ignored.
The Humane Society of the United States participated in what officials are calling one of the largest animal seizes in the state of West Virginia Thursday morning, taking 40 to 50 horses from a man in Wayne County.
Gary Belcher is the owner of the horses, he says he did nothing wrong.
"They all eat good and I haven't had any problems with anything," Belcher said. He told WSAZ.com the horses were skinny when he got them. "Trying to fatten them up," Belcher said. "They've come a long way."
Neighbors said they do not believe that is the case. Joe Stanley lives nearby, he said he has been making calls on the state Belcher's animals for ten years.
"I've seen horses come in here as pretty as a picture and leave as skeletons," Kenneth Leslie told WSAZ.com. "I've watched backhoe after backhoe of them being burried."
Leslie said the horses were sometimes fed slices of bread and very rarely given water.
Adam Parascandola, Director of Animal Cruelty Issues, says he was made aware of the problem eight months ago and was finally able to coordinate with local law enforcement to solve the problem. Twenty-seven Humane Society employees took part in the animal seize.
Parascandola said it will be a four to six week process to bring the horses, which are malnourished and suffering various medical problems, back to health -- then they will find a good home for them.
The Humane Society said last month, nearly 50 dogs suffering from the same issues as the horses were taken from Belcher.
