TIPTON, Iowa (AP) — A pet cemetery owner in eastern Iowa is battling state regulators over the proper procedure for burying horses, seeking a commission’s support in throwing out a $10,000 fine.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources issued the fine to Steve Johnson of Tipton for not sending dozens of horses to a landfill, the Des Moines Register reported. The state considers the animals to be “solid waste” that should be discarded in that manner.
