WELD COUNTY - A picture of what looks like a starving horse in Weld County has been making the rounds on social media as an outcry to get help for the horse. People who have seen the photo have taken action, such as calling numerous emergency agencies.
The Weld County Sheriff's Office confirms it is currently investigating an animal cruelty case involving the horse and other animals located in the 15000 block of Nancy Avenue near Fort Lupton.
The animals in the investigation have been relocated "due to interference in this matter by unknown citizens," says a press release sent by the Sheriff's Office on Wednesday.
"The Sheriff's Office and many other emergency service providers have received numerous phone calls urging further investigation into this incident," says the release.
No further details on the investigation are being released at this time.
