North Bay Nugget - - OPINION -

NA­PA­NEE, Ont. — Pro­vin­cial po­lice say a woman has been charged after al­legedly al­low­ing horses to run free on roads in Tyen­d­i­naga Town­ship in east­ern On­tario.

OPP say of­fi­cers had re­sponded to nu­mer­ous calls re­gard­ing the roam­ing horses over the past sev­eral months. In­ves­ti­ga­tors say they de­ter­mined that the horses were able to leave the prop­erty due to in­ad­e­quate fenc­ing. They say of­fi­cers, as­sisted by the On­tario So­ci­ety for the Pre­ven­tion of Cru­elty to An­i­mals, ex­e­cuted a search war­rant on the prop­erty in re­la­tion to an­i­mal wel­fare is­sues on Tues­day.

Po­lice say a 70-year-old woman is charged with mis­chief.
