Remove Horses From Custody of Alleged Animal Abuser

Target: Fulton County Animal Control Field Enforcement

Goal: Ensure man accused of multiple animal welfare violations can’t keep horses on his property.

A man already facing aggravated animal cruelty charges for the abuse of horses has been cited for animal cruelty again. Police responded to a call from a neighbor alleging that Branden Fulton of Fulton County, Georgia was beating his horses. When they arrived, they reportedly found four horses without any water available to them.

Fulton was previously charged with animal cruelty after animal services found four dead and three malnourished horses on his property, a farm 15 miles away from downtown Atlanta. One of the horses had reportedly been burned, while others were left to decompose on the property. Others were allegedly roaming the properly in various stages of starvation. At that time, several horses were removed from the property and Fulton was ordered by a judge to get rid of any remaining horses.

Before that, Fulton was accused of leaving a horse in a hot trailer for 7 hours. He was also cited for not providing proper enclosures for his animals.

If the above allegations are true, it would seem that a repeat animal abuser has acquired more horses to neglect. Considering Fulton’s alleged track record, it’s clear that these horses are in danger of mistreatment. In order to save more animals from starvation and death, it’s imperative that the animals are removed from the property and that Fulton is more closely monitored to ensure that no more horses are brought on to the property. Sign the petition below to ask local animal welfare agencies to send immediate help for these animals.


Dear Fulton County Animal Control Field Enforcement,

A man accused of starving several horses and leaving several more to die and decay on his property has been charged with animal cruelty once again. Branden Fulton has been cited for giving his horses no access to water. Police laid these charges after responding to a call from a concerned neighbor who alleged that Fulton was beating his horses.

A judge previously demanded that Fulton get rid of his animals, but it seems that there are still animals on his property. Considering his alleged track record, it seems that these horses are at risk of abuse. We, the undersigned, ask you to work hard to ensure that the animals are removed from his custody. We also ask for more oversight of the Fulton farm in order to ensure that no more animals are subjected to abuse.

    Here’s another dumb sob that shouldn’t be allowed to live. He better be prosecuted and banned from ever owing another animal.


  3. Angela Rabon says:

    Brandon Fulton should not be allowed to own, possess, or care for ANY ANIMALS, not just horses. Laws need to be strict and specific so that people clearly understand what the courts mean. Mr. Fulton needs to spend a considerable amount of time behind bars for the crimes he has committed against these beautiful defenseless animals.

    Alright Atlanta, Georgia Enforcement Officers, do your duty and make him pay for the suffering and inhumanness this creep Branden Fulton caused to these innocent horses. And make sure he does not get the stupid judge he had last time that did not have the remaining horses removed himself and told him to “get rid of them”. What kind of human tells anyone (but especially not an animal abuser) to”get rid of them”! Basically giving him permission to do anything he wanted with/to them. The law in all areas must take some kind of humane awareness classes. And the animal lovers must come together and tell law enforcement that we aren’t going to stand by and let them keep turning animal abusers loose with only a slap on the wrist. And all animal lovers must demand stronger laws in all 50 states!!

  5. Simon Rimmer says:

    Animal abuse and cruelty must become a death penalty crime. Humans that are cruel need to be eradicated from the planet. It’s time to clean up the human garbage in this world.

  6. Cynthia Gannon says:

    Why don’t these officials enforce the law. How hard can that be. Animal abuse is rampant no matter what state . It’s up to elected officials to create laws protecting animals and law enforcement to follow them. There are a lot of really callous and stupid judges sitting on the bench. They are worse than the perpetrators because they have some education, and they are intended to uphold the law and they are incompetent. In any corporation they would be fired , being derelict in their duties. And they continue with their lazy performance…

  7. ABUSE has got to stop. This scumbag is pure evil and nothing but a coward. He should get the same punishment he inflicted on these precious innocent animals. An animal abuser will also abuse people if given the chance. There definitely needs to be an animal abuse registry. Please do the right thing and punish him to the full extent of the law.
