Starving Horses Reportedly Forced to Eat Dirt and Wood Deserve Justice

Target: Chris Gaal, Prosecuting Attorney for Monroe County, Indiana

 Goal: Demand that the man who allegedly starved three horses, leading to the deaths of two, receive the maximum penalty possible by law, if convicted.

Two horses allegedly starved to death in a sad case of animal cruelty. One surviving horse was reportedly so hungry that the poor animal ate dirt and wood. Demand justice for these innocent horses.

Officers with the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department searched Jeffery Richardson’s property after they received complaints about the health of his horses. Upon arrival, officers reportedly found the bodies of two deceased horses in a barn. Those horses appeared to have died from starvation. The one surviving horse on the property also showed signs of malnourishment, veterinarians stated, and the animal’s stool contained mainly dirt and wood.

The surviving horse was removed from the property and is now being cared for at a private residence. Officers charged Richardson with two felony and three misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty and failure to dispose of a dead animal. Sign below and demand that Richardson receive the maximum penalty possible by law, if convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Prosecuting Attorney Gaal,

Two horses died, and one more suffered horribly, when they were allegedly starved. One horse reportedly became so desperate for food that the poor animal ate wood and dirt. We demand justice for these innocent horses.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Department charged Jeffery Richardson with animal cruelty and failure to dispose of a dead animal after he allegedly starved two horses to death. Officers reportedly found the horses’ decomposing bodies inside of a barn, and they appeared to have died from starvation. One surviving horse showed signs of malnourishment, veterinarians stated, and the animal had ingested significant amounts of wood and dirt out of desperation. The surviving horse is now being cared for at a private residence. Richardson was arrested and will face his charges at a future hearing.

This alleged neglect cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This piece of disgusting filth needs to be starved to death. An eye for an eye. Please don’t let the law give him a slap on the wrist. Anybody who can do this to a defenceless animal deserves to suffer.

  2. Heartless piece of scum. Hope this selfish man starves to death in prison. Might give him a bit if an understanding of what he put these three poor horses through.

  3. Susan Budde says:

    People in the area need to ambush this filthy son of a bitch and beat him to death.

      I so agree with you. Until such time as the Law changes and takes animal abuse, torture and murder seriously then Morally Street Justice Must Prevail.

  4. Kathy Khoshfahm says:

    Chris – Jeffery Richardson is guilty of murder, plain and simple. If he did not have the resources to feed these horses, any humane society in the area would have made arrangements to come and get them; at the very least bring them some food. Please prosecute this uneducated, elementary POS to the fullest extent allowed under Indiana law. Please show the world that Monroe County WILL NOT tolerate animal torture and/or murder. Please!
