Odin man charged with animal cruelty 14 Sep 18

A 54-year-old Odin man is facing charges of animal cruelty, animal neglect, and not providing proper equine hoof care. This comes after miniature horses were taken from Michael Johnson’s farm in June after Watonwan County Sheriffs received an anonymous tip. The criminal complaint says investigators witnessed dead and neglected horses. The horses had overgrown hooves and were caked in waste. Johnson no longer has custody of the horses.
