PLAQUEMINE - Tuesday, a veterinarian will conduct a health screening on horses suffering from starvation that were rescued by Iberville Parish Animal Control.

Recently in separate cases, three horses starved to death and two others were found in poor health. At least three different people are facing animal cruelty charges in the parish.

WBRZ first reported the malnourished horses Monday and, by Tuesday, two additional horses had been rescued from desperate conditions.

"Iberville Parish will not accept this kind of abuse of animals," Mark Migliacio, the head of the parish animal control, said in the original WBRZ story.

The veterinarian visits set up by the parish for the rescued horses will be billed to the owners of the animals.
