Horses may be taken into custody

Responding to reports of animal abuse, Nevada County Animal Control may seize up to eight horses from a 45-acre ranch on the 12000 block of Spenceville Road.

Nevada County Sheriff’s Lt. Ron Earls said an officer issued notice of the right to a pre-seizure hearing to Pam Fyffe, who owns the ranch located across from the Penn Valley Collision Center.

Fyffe lives out of the area, but deputies were able to contact her.

If Fyffe do not respond to the notice by the the end of the work day Tuesday, all of the horses on the property will be seized, Earls said.
