Even though I have never seen her, I'll bet Diane Silbaugh is big, nasty, overweight person. That's usually who you see mistreating poor defenseless, helpless animals. They should make her serve her sentence in a burial yard full of dead horses that are waiting to be buried. Or else she should have to eat horse manure.

I hope Portage County throws the book at her. I drive by there all the time. Across the street from her is a man who buries dumpsters of stuff in his yard. His place is nothing but a dump. He owns cows now. Portage County needs to look at what he has buried in his yard.

YOU KNOW HER NAME SEND HER MAIL ABOUT HOW YOU FEEL.SHE WOULD LOVE THAT I BET. SHE WILL GET PROBATION AND ORDERED TO STAY AWAY FROM ANIMALS OR JAIL WILL BE PENDING. A FINE WILL BE IN ORDER. NO LISCENCE REQUIRED BUT COMMON SENCE SHOULD BE. HONK YOUR HORNS AS YOU GO BY HER PLACE. IN HARRISIN COUNTY CHESTER THOMPSON WAS IN THE SAME SITUATION. WAS FINED N GIVEN TIME BUT SUSPENED PENDING. THE IDIOT HAD A WOMAN BY A HORSE IN SUGARCREEK. HE WAS ON CAMERA GOEING INTO THE STALL. ARRESTED AND SENTANCE TO PRISON FOR ONE YEAR. SHOULD SEE ALL THE HORSES N COWS N ANIMALS IN SOUTHERN OHIO WHERE NO ONE WATCHES HOW THESE ANIMALS ARE TREATED

I boarded my horse with Diane in cuy. falls around 8 years ago, she had rever rest in cuy. falls. my horse started losing weight and I found out she wasnt feeding the horses hay,only grain. I started buying my horse his own hay even though I was paying full board.I had to sell my horse just to get it out of that dump and then turned her into humane society. All the horses there were under weight, she gets herself into $ problems too many horses, this isnt her first time neglecting animals. Shes a hoarder of animals she doesnt know how to stop getting horses, dogs, goats.She should never be able to own animals again.

Why didn't the other "boarders" see the starving horses? The lady on the news video clip said she didn't go visit her horses!!! Why, if I had four horses boarded I would sure as HOOVES go check on them, it had been months since the "fairs" ended, those three could have been saved! The owner needs the same treatment as this "Diane" gets in my opinion. Wonder if that owner paid her board bill? That may be the reason she didn't go visit her horses. HOWEVER - Not paying a board bill is not a reason for the stable owner to starve the animal!

I never wanted to be on jury duty. but if she requested a trial. I would love to be on that one.

Give her the Chair.... Use your taser officer to subdue her.... Then give her the chair. Use a whole can of tear gas on her. Other police forces do it...

I foster for Medina county SPCA and I am proud to say that we have an AWESOME SPCA.. I sure hope Portage does too. This lady needs to be taken down! Its too bad that the legal systems doesnt care as much as we do. Keep pushing this issue!! Keep it in the media! Look how it helped the Lodi rescue case this summer!!! Nasty animal hoarders.

I think that anyone who knows Diane should not be surprised. Most who have crossed her path realize the type of person she is. I also USE to board with her, before I quickly realized who she was. I would be interested to know how many people reading these posts actually know her. Knowing that she has a history of picking up and putting down roots all over the place.

She worked with me at a kennel in Hudson many years ago, and failed to show up for work for 3 days. Never called off. So, I called her and asked if she had quit or was sick? She said she just didn't feel like coming to work. At that time, she claimed to have worked for Black Horse farm in Peninsula taking care of horses. I ran into her again when looking for a place to board my horse. She was then leasing a farm in Cuyahoga Falls. She had barbed wire up, pot bellied pigs in the barn aisle and was excited about having campfires near the barn! A young girl that leased one of my horses met up with the perp and told me Diane was renting the farm with the plan to buy it. Reportedly her boyfriend was a contractor in Iraq and sending money home. She had approx. 14 horses of "her own" and within months was reported to have about 40! I was reading a link to NetPosse re: stolen horses and found a former boarder of Diane's has a posting looking for her horse "Apache" missing since she boared with Diane in '05.

Like I am going to stand up and scream HANG HER!!!! DUH

Of course anyone that likes animals might be eliminated. They might have to exclude anyone with a dog or a cat from that jury. Or any type of pet.

The horses are back on the farm today? If the horses are "back on the farm" then there must be more to this story. Why would the horses be back to be "staved", sounds fishy to me. I am totally amazed now. Wonder why they would be "back on the farm today" after she has been charged like the articles indicate.
