PARK RAPIDS, Minn. (AP) — A woman is accused of tying two horses to a tree in northern Minnesota, more than two weeks before the animals were found starved to death.

Twenty-eight-year-old Minden Crenshaw of Park Rapids faces three felony counts of mistreating animals.

The Star Tribune ( ) reports Crenshaw posted bond Monday afternoon.

According to the charges, a man out for a walk found the horse carcasses in the woods and contacted the Hubbard County sheriff's office Saturday. One horse was tied to a tree while the other apparently had broken its rope.

The sheriff's office says Crenshaw acknowledged tying her horses to a tree on a neighbor's property after her mother refused to keep the animals at home.

An after-hours phone message left for Crenshaw's attorney was not immediately returned Monday.
