Authorities in Otter Tail county executed a large animal rescue mission just north of Perham on Friday.

Deputies got the search warrant that day, and ended up taking 11 neglected horses off the farmstead, some in better shape than others.


Authorities say the caretaker ignored previous suggestions and warnings, forcing deputies into action. Just in time, too - initially the rescue crew thought they might lose one horse.
