Horses found without food, water, shelter

PLAINFIELD TWP., Pa. - In Northampton County, a case of animal cruelty is leading to charges against a homeowner.

Officials say Dominic Delflorio is facing animal cruelty charges after leaving 15 horses without food, water, or shelter over the weekend.

They say one of the horses had an open wound with maggots coming out of its leg.

Officials say 15 horses were discovered Saturday, when they got a call that four of them were loose.

"We arrived here and found the remaining 11 horses and neither house on the property was occupied and the horses were left with no food, water, or shelter," said officer Scott Sabriskie of the Plainfield Township Police Department.

All 15 horses are now in the care of Last Chance Ranch in Quakertown.

They're expected to be okay.
