MASSENA— A Massena man was arrested Thursday afternoon when state police discovered the remains of four horses, one a rotting corpse.

State police arrested Patrick J. O’Neill, 65, Massena, on 22 counts of animal cruelty after investigating the property at 326 Haberstock Road.

No cause of death was listed for any of the horses; however it was suspected one had been dead for at least two weeks. More than 20 other horses were removed from the scene.

Police were assisted by the Massena Humane Society and all animals were examined by veterinarian Joel Nezenon.

Mr. O’Neill was arraigned in Massena Town Court and later released on his own recognizance to appear at a later date.

The investigation is ongoing. No other suspects have been listed.
