Rome, February 6 - Rome police and State
veterinary authorities on Wednesday seized more than 100 horses,
donkeys and mules, and cited the owners of a farm for abuse,
neglect and abandonment near the Lazio town of Velletri.
Police were alerted by the Italian Horse Protection
Association Equidae, who told authorities that the animals were
"subjected to harsh winter temperatures, exposed to the
elements, living in mud, undernourished and suffering".
The task force coordinated by the Italian Health Ministry
said that they found the animals in "an obvious state of
suffering and malnutrition".
Most of the animals have been transferred to the Faculty of
Veterinary Medicine at the University of Perugia, for urgent
care.
Investigators have ordered a search of all properties
belonging to the owners.
