(Neb.) - Nebraska charges filed over horse deaths
OSHKOSH, Neb. (AP) - A 65-year-old Oshkosh man faces six felony counts of neglect because six of his horses were found dead in western Nebraska's Garden County.
Harry Cross is due in court on May 3.
Garden County Attorney Phillip Pierce says the horses of dehydration or starvation. They hadn't been checked for 22 days.
The carcasses were found April 8 near an empty stock tank. The well pump apparently stopped working and the tank went dry.
A seventh horse was found alive but soon died.
A phone listed for Cross was not in service on Monday. Online court records don't list the name of his attorney.
