Target: Jean Engler, District Attorney
Goal: Aim for the maximum penalty for veterinarian who allegedly had a dozen starved and dehydrated horses, along with several deceased animals, on his property.
A veterinarian was charged with 11 counts of animal cruelty and tampering with evidence after over a dozen starving horses and a disgusting amount of other animal remains were found strewn about his property. Dead horses were reportedly found under a mattress that had been partially burned, two dead horses under a pallet, a dead dog, goat, two sheep, and a lamb were also found in a pit.
Officers say the horses that were still alive were suffering from dehydration and starvation. The rescue group who took the emaciated horses expressed being appalled that this person dedicated his life to saving animals, yet he’s been letting his own horses suffer in one of the most painful ways a being can suffer – starvation and dehydration. Unfortunately, according to outlets, the veterinarian’s disgusting crimes were dismissed in court, but he was later ordered to pay a $500 fine for practicing under an expired veterinarian license.
It’s clear that justice wasn’t served here and that the judge must not care about animals. There’s no excuse for a veterinarian to tolerate this horrific abuse of animals. The pain and suffering they must have felt is unimaginable and stomach turning. Demand that this veterinarian be given the maximum penalty and barred from ever owning or working with animals again.
Dear Ms. Engler,
A veterinarian and his wife were charged with multiple counts of animal cruelty when authorities found over a dozen emaciated horses on their property. Officers said some of the horses were in such horrible condition that they weren’t even capable of walking.
To force your animals to starve and dehydrate to the point of emaciation is purely cruel, but coming from a veterinarian, this is just sickening. This man clearly doesn’t care about animals and has no business working with them. Please be the voice for these innocent animals and bring justice for their suffering. We demand that the veterinarian receive the maximum penalty and be banned from ever possessing animals again, if found guilty.
