Lake Clear man charged with abusing horses

LAKE CLEAR, N.Y. (WCAX) A Franklin County, New York, horse owner faces animal cruelty charges.

New York State troopers armed with a search warrant went to the home of Travis Devalinger, 44, in Lake Clear. Troopers say they checked the conditions of 40 horses on the property and that eight of them were removed after they were found to be emaciated and living in extremely poor conditions.

Devalinger is due in court later in December.
