A 21-year-old Dickinson woman could face charges in connection with animal neglect.
Bismarck police were called to the 200 block of south 11th Street Thursday around 6pm where a horse had been left in a trailer.
The temperature was above 90 degrees.
A caller said the horse had been in the trailer for several hours during the heat of the day without water.
Officers called a veterinarian who told them to remove the horse and give it water.
Police made contact with the woman who said she had watered it in the morning.
The case has been sent to the city attorney for possible charges.
