HOWE, Ind. (WOWO): The LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department and the State Board of Animal Health found no wrongdoing after complaints of possible animal neglect in Howe.

A veterinarian inspected the animals at 3455 N State Road 9 after a viral Facebook post raised suspicion of animal neglect.

However, the veterinarian found adequate water and food for the animals along with adequate medical and health care. Officials also say the property owner was cooperative during the inspection.

A follow-up visit will come at a later time to ensure the owner is taking good care of the animals.

How are dead and severely malnourished animals on a property considered adequately taken care of? When was the follow up from the September 2017?
