WRIGHT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Ottawa County deputies are investigating the welfare of horses rescued from flood waters in Wright Township.
Last Thursday, the Sheriff's Office received a complaint about horses on a property on Cleveland Street caught in rising water from torrential rains.
A deputy made arrangements to get the animals to dry ground, and sent a veterinarian to check them out.
A dead horse was also found on the property, so the Sheriff's Office opened an investigation.
It will be handed over to the prosecutor once it is complete.
