Four horses were removed from a Jonesborough field on Tuesday afternoon after Washington County/Johnson City Animal Control Officer Wayne Thomas found four emaciated animals out of a total of five involved in a cruelty case initiated on July 9, according to court documents. “Right now they are being removed for their own safety to make sure they are cared for properly,” Thomas said. “At this time, they still belong to the respective owners.
