Horse Allegedly Dragged Behind Pickup Truck Deserves Justice

Target: Melissa Gilliam, Prosecuting Attorney, Saint Francois County, MO

Goal: Arrest and charge trainer who allegedly dragged horse down a gravel road while tied to the back of a pickup truck.

A horse named Shelby is suffering from brutal injuries sustained after she was allegedly tied to the back of a pickup truck and dragged down a gravel road. This innocent animal deserves justice and the individual allegedly responsible for this abuse must be charged to the fullest extent of the law.

According to her owners, Shelby was left with Missouri trainer Leah Godat for help with training and handling. When family came to visit Shelby, they reported seeing large, deep scrape wounds down her legs and along the side of her body. Shortly after, video surfaced of Godat allegedly tying Shelby to the bumper of her truck and dragging her down a gravel road. According to witnesses, the horse fell three times but the truck did not stop.

Shelby’s owners say that the horse is both physically and mentally traumatized. An investigation into Godat is ongoing. Sign the petition to demand that Godat be arrested and charged to the fullest extent of the law.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney Gilliam,

A horse named Shelby was allegedly tied to the back of a pickup truck and dragged down a gravel road. No matter how many times she fell, said witnesses, the driver of the truck never stopped. Now, Shelby is suffering from deep wounds along her body and severe traumatic distress.

Leah Godat, a horse trainer, is allegedly responsible for these actions according to video evidence. This cruelty cannot go unpunished. I demand that Godat be arrested and charged with animal abuse.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. What animal is this that drags a horse, arrest her with maximum jail time and fine

    • Why put this POS in jail on the tax payer’s money, put a bullet between the trainer’s eyes! It’s time to begin sending messages to animal abusers that enough is enough & that any abuse will no longer be tolerated. Maybe if really harsh action again abusers happened we’d see less abuse of innocent animals.

  2. Animal abusers must have the mandatory death penalty implemented.

  3. This bullshit gotta stop.
    Heaftier fines
    More time in jail. And i mean more time not just another day or two. They need to stop and think about what they did.
    Otherwise nobody learns shit.

  4. This piece of trash should be tied & drag doen a gravel road herself!!! so she can feel what this poor horse went through, she need to spend maximum time in jail!!! & never be asble to have any access to any animal again!!

  5. This piece of trash should be tied & drag down a gravel road herself!!! so she can feel what this poor horse went through, she need to spend maximum time in jail!!! & never be asble to have any access to any animal again!!

  6. Do the same to this worthless piece of human garbage. Then just leave her to rot.

  7. stop human garbage says:

    WOMEN HAVE GONE FROM NURTURING PROTECTORS OF ANIMALS AND CHILDREN TO JOIN THE RANKS OF IGNORANT CRUEL ABUSIVE MALE DOMINANCE AND THIS “WOMAN” PSYCHOPATH DESERVES PRISON AND TO HAVE ALL ANIMALS TAKEN FROM HER AND SHE SHOULD NEVER EVER TOUCH ANOTHER HORSE IN HER SICK LIFE SHE NEEDS PROFESSIONAL PSYCHIATRIC HELP

  8. What other abuse has she done to other horses, animals or even to kids. I feel your right about jail time but I also feel she should be tied up to a truck and drag to. I hope she falls and the truck doesn’t stop.

  9. I think the people that did this to this point animal should be dragged behind a truck and see how that feels. I can even imagine that excruciating pain that this poor animal must have felt being dragged that didn’t know what was happening did it do something wrong was it good all that knew was that it was being punished and it was in pain and how dare those assholes do this that poor animal what bastards

    • The Retard needs torture before being shot dead at dawn, it is the only way to keep animals safe. All animal abusers to be eliminated, it should be the law

  11. This lowlife pos psychopathic depraved pea size brain monster from hell Leah Godat must be brought to justice and jailed for life for this monsters sadism and evilness committed against precious and defenceless Shelby. If I could get to this lowlife animal torturing monster from hell Leah Godat this lowlife pos would find out what it is like being tortured and dying in agony. Kill the evil prick monster. Psychopathic monsters like this lowlife pos does not deserve to breath the air or live. Eradication from our planet is a must.

    Stop the slap on the wrist punishments! Heavy fines. Confiscate property and auction it off to pay for all medical care and housing until a good home is found. Community service of 1000’s of hours cleaning litter, helping the elderly, helping the homeless by repairing places they could live, working in SPCA, any and All jobs that need done to improve the community. Above All, NEVER be allowed to be a pet parent again.

  13. The owners of the horse need to do the same thing to her…
