(ANDERSON) - A central Indiana man faces a preliminary charge of animal cruelty after police found two dead horses on his Anderson property.

Sixty-one-year-old Robert Clendenin is being held without bond at the Madison County Jail on preliminary counts of improper disposal of a dead animal and cruelty to an animal.

Maj. Brian Bell of the Madison County Sheriff's Department says deputies were initially called Friday to Clendenin's residence to investigate a horse that had gotten loose. He tells The Herald Bulletin that deputies instead found two horses stacked on top of each other.

Bell said the horses were bloated and covered in fleas and the area was filled with a stench the deputies reported as almost unbearable.
