The surviving horses’ current location and condition are unreported. Ryan has been charged with 10 misdemeanor counts of overdriving, torturing and injuring animals. Sign below and demand that Ryan receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.


Dear District Attorney Hoovier,

Nine horses died and one horse suffered with severe emaciation when they were allegedly starved and neglected. Per prosecutors, their owner subjected them to aggravated cruelty, defined as conduct that caused either extreme pain, or was “carried out in an especially depraved or sadistic manner.” We demand justice for these innocent horses.

An Orange County grand jury charged owner Jeanne Ryan with 10 felony counts of aggravated animal cruelty after she allegedly starved the nine horses to death, included a mare and her foal. One surviving horse was reportedly so emaciated that the horse’s ribs showed through its skin, and ten addition horses on the property were reportedly in dire need of hoof and dental care. Per officials, the decomposing remains of the horses were found on Ryan’s farm and piled in the woods on the property.

This horrific abuse must be punished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.
