Abuse charged, horse seized

GEORGETOWN — A Madison County woman is accused of letting her gelding horse become sick and emaciated.

Sheriff’s deputies said Constance A. McGee, of Georgetown, was investigated for a sickly horse on her property earlier this year. When a deputy returned to follow-up on the horse’s condition, he discovered that McGee had not taken any of the department’s previous advice.

The gelding, which is between 25 and 30-years-old, was examined by a veterinarian on April 24, and was found to still be emaciated, with the onset of some serious health issues.

The horse was seized two days later, and is being rehabilitated at a farm in Clinton.

Deputies said McGee is charged with failure to provide sustenance to a horse, authorities stated. She is scheduled to appear in Town Court on May 9.
