Curry County Horse Abuse Arrest

BROOKINGS, Ore. — A Brookings man with a history of animal neglect charges is once again behind bars for animal neglect. Michael Perry is facing several charges linked to the neglect of ten horses on his Brookings property.

The Curry County Sheriff’s Office says it received reports the horses were living in small pens filled with thick mud and feces, forced to eat dirt and bark off of trees.

Earlier this week Sheriff’s deputies took nine of the horses into protective custody. It was reported the tenth horse died because of poor living conditions. The Sheriff’s Office says Perry was convicted of animal neglect in the second degree last December in Deschutes County.

If you would like to help the animals recover with volunteer time, food, equipment, or money, contact the Curry County Sheriff’s Office. That number is 541-247-3320.
