Target: Mark Duncan, District Attorney for Leake County, Mississippi
Goal: Demand that the man who allegedly killed two horses and 10 animals and scattered the remains on his property be sentenced the maximum penalty possible.
The Leake County Sheriff’s office found a bone yard of animal remains on a local property. One surviving horse was in poor condition and could barely walk. Demand that justice is served for these innocent animals.
Leake County Sheriff’s deputies found two fresh horse carcasses and 10 animal skulls during their search. “His flesh and all was intact under the water, so he’d not been dead that long. But the banks were really high, and you could tell he had tried to get out of the pond,” stated Joy Reynolds, an animal rescuer, who was referring to the dead horse.
One horse was found alive but in poor condition. The property contained two pastures, but rescuers noted that there was no food available for the horses. She was taken in by a local horse rescue. Deputies charged Joe Nathan Stewart, the property’s owner, with one count of animal cruelty. Sign below and demand that this man face the maximum penalty in this case if he is found guilty.
Dear District Attorney Duncan,
Leake County Sheriff’s deputies charged a man with animal cruelty after they found 10 animal skulls and two horse carcasses on his property. One horse was found alive but in poor condition. Demand that justice is served for these innocent animals.
“There’s no reason for her or any of the others to have gone through what they went through,” stated Joy Reynolds, a rescuer with Saving Our Strays (SOS) horse rescue. SOS rescued Fancy, the surviving horse, from the property. Fancy could barely walk and was near death when help arrived. She is now walking again and showing great improvement.
This alleged horrific abuse cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case if the property owner is found guilty for animal cruelty.
