Two animal owners accused of neglecting nearly 70 horses in South Dakota’s Pennington County have voluntarily turned themselves in to authorities.

RAPID CITY, S.D. — Two animal owners accused of neglecting nearly 70 horses in South Dakota’s Pennington County have voluntarily turned themselves in to authorities.

The Pennington County Sheriff’s Office says the couple turned themselves in Friday morning. The couple had been wanted on 10 counts of inhumane treatment of an animal. Warrants for their arrest had been issued.

The man and woman are currently out on bond.

The Sheriff’s Office impounded 69 horses the couple owned for neglect earlier this month. Officials were able to find adoption homes for the last 10 Spanish Mustang horses Friday morning.
