LUTHER, Oklahoma -

An eyewitness flagged down an Oklahoma County deputy after seeing two horses that appeared to be malnourished.

The deputy was driving near N.E. 150th Street and N. Harrah Road in Luther when the witness approached him. The deputy first spoke to the owner of the animals then took a closer look at the horses. The animals appeared emaciated.

The deputy obtained a warrant and the horses were removed from the property. The non-profit group Blaze's Tribute Equine Rescue Inc. is caring for the animals.

The Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office is still investigating the case. A court hearing is scheduled to determine if the owner will lose his rights to the horses.
