A team of PSPCA Officers and state officials did a search and seizure; upon their arrival they found that most of the animals on this farm were already dead while many others had to be euthanized immediately. The majority of remaining animals needed immediate veterinary assistance.

These animals were severely undernourished and living in filthy, run-down conditions. No food, hay or water was seen anywhere near the animals. Further investigation revealed supplies that were stockpiled nearby in a huge trailer.

Most of the animals endured an unbearable existence while cruelly confined in piled-up filth and debris inside their stalls and cages. Some horses were found dead in their stalls, while three goats lay dead outside a barn. One pony had an open wound that had been left untreated for over a year; a resulting infection had spread throughout the pony's back.

All of these conditions were documented by photographs and supported by testimony from witnesses, yet the judgment was 'not guilty.'

This terrible judgement is APPALLING.

This is so very disturbing. Where do we get these judges from? We really need to clean house. So many are letting criminals off the hook & this is certainly a criminal act. What an idiot he is.
Please take the time to write to this jerk & let him know this is unacceptable.
