ODESSA - A malnourished horse that was seized by Odessa Animal Control isn't going anywhere.

A judge ruled on Tuesday morning that the horse will stay with Animal Control.

Animal Control started investigating after a concerned resident called them after seeing the animal at the West Texas Horse Center.

Animal Control will decide if the horse will go to a rescue shelter or be auctioned off. 
Officials say they still have to decide if they are going to investigate the horse's original owner for intentional mistreatment.
