CALEDON, Ont. – A man and woman travelling to Canada from China were arrested Monday on outstanding animal cruelty charges from more than a decade ago.

Provincial police in Caledon, Ont., say a warrant was issued for the arrest of Joseph Sau-Chuen Chang, 54, and Mee-Young Chung, 49, in 2005.

They say officers searched a Caledon home after neighbours reported seeing horses in distress, and found nearly 30 horses in a penned area without food or water, as well as two horses who had died.

Police allege the pair had abandoned the horses and moved to Hong Kong.
