CRUELTY OF ANIMALS INVOLVING HORSES IN THE WINSLOW AREA

On September 14, 2019, The Navajo County Sheriff’s Office was contacted to assist the Department of Agriculture with a report involving the cruelty of animals involving horses in the Winslow area.
The location was just south of Winslow, off of State Route 99. Upon our Deputy checking on the property he located four deceased horses and nine emaciated horses. Upon completion of an initial investigation the owner of the horses, Paul Kinlecheenie, was arrested on four felony counts of animal cruelty and nine misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty and was booked into the Navajo County Jail in Holbrook.
During this investigation nine horses were seized and placed into the care of a neighbor until the Department of Agriculture can make plans to pick the horses up sometime this week.
