Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Deputies on Friday served a search warrant at a home and rescued nine starving horses. Three dead horses also were found.

Pottawatomie County Undersheriff Travis Palmer said they served that warrant at a home on Maple Leaf Circle, which is just inside Pottawatomie County off SH 9.

Nine malnourished horses were confiscated with help from an area rescue group.

The three dead horses found on the small acreage were recent deaths — one the past few days, one about a week ago and another about one month ago, Palmer said.
