A Clinton man was arrested Wednesday on animal cruelty charges after two horses described as underfed and very thin were seized from his property.
The horses were seized from the property of Jason Shipley on Wednesday by Anderson County Animal Control officers and taken to the University of Tennessee Veterinary School for evaluation. The horses were then turned over to Horse Haven of Tennessee, where they are said to be doing well.
Shipley was charged with two counts of animal cruelty, and he was also picked up on several outstanding warrants unrelated to Wednesday’s incident.
