Malnourished horses found on Fayette County land

FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - The Georgia Department of Agriculture
is investigating the treatment of horses on Fayette County property
owned by Atlanta-area televangelist the Rev. Creflo Dollar, who
doesn't own the horses.

A family friend, Jason Mitchell, bought the horses, saying they
would be kept on Dollar's property.

Records show the horses had no water or dirty water, weren't fed
properly and had body weights dropping to dangerous levels.

State inspectors say one of the horses died because the owners
failed to feed it and several other horses.

Mitchell has been cited for inhumane treatment of animals.

A spokesman for Dollar says the minister was not involved in
their care.
