It's my job to report it. She doesn't have to be nasty about it, she can just say she was very concerned. Heck, she doesn't even have to give her name, she can report it anonymously if she wants. The important thing is that she did try to help but it hasn't worked and now she wants to take it to the next step. In this case, the animals' welfare is the most important thing.

    I agree. It sounds like she has tried to help but nothing changed. She has to atleast do SOMETHING.

    VA and BB, I agree 100%. Completely! And from what has been said, toosexy4myspots has already tried to intervein (as she states later in the thread - BTW - good foryou) But even before that was said - everyone jumps right to calling athorities. Before toosexy4 made the statement in post 13 (14??) that she had tried to help previously, 11 posts were made to call athorities - not counting her original post. That's what I was gettin at.

    Reguardless...I think that it has gotten to that point already. So even the conservative(me) is agreeing....Make a call. Or two.. Or thr.....well, you get the idea. SOMEthin has to be done.

    Another option is to contact the local rescue (which I'm sure has contacts with AC) and they may help you with filing the abuse report.
    Take pictures, but if you can't take them from public land, DON'T! I advise that the one thing you don't do is take the law into your own hands. That's up to the authorities. If you can, try to have proof that you took the photos from say a roadside or whatever.
    Sam has a small section of his pasture (his pasture's about 8 - 10 acres) that's this slimy, greasy muck. It's awful if they are up to their knees in mud.

    How one can help in such situation? Is the person who owns the horses is blind or so mentally ******ed that she doesn't understand the BASIC needs for the animal? We are not taking about 10 years old kid here, and I bet that person eats every day (and probably not just bread crumbs) and sleeps in house, not in mud. Do you really believe she going to listen to the friend or neighbor? I don't think so.

    Of course, there are DIFFERENT situations. For example I run into person (on different forum) who honestly believe that smacking the horse with the hand is a horrible abuse, which needs to be reported to authorities (even though horse is trying to get on top of you and has no respect). Another person I know thinks keeping blankets on horses is abuse and needs to be reported. But it's not the case here (at least how it sounds).

    P.S. Sorry if it sounds harsh, but keeping ANY animal in such situation just really driving me crazy...

    Good luck with the local animal shelter. I had to do this on a man who lives on my street. He has 9 horses on a 1 acre lot. There is no grass and no weeds. They were so hungry they ate the poke salad. I made several complaints to locals and when they would come out he would show them he had feed and hay. But the big issue is you can look at the horses and see he isn't feeding them. The only way he worms them is by putting purex in thier water. I have never heard of worming horse this way with bleach. The locals never come back and check on them. I would do my best to get pictures and then call the state, which is over the local. They want pictures and proof. I have prayed for these horses. He is doing better at taking care of them. It takes more to get them back healthy and he just isn't doing it. I will be making another call to the state.

    If it comes down to it and the sheriffs office won't do anything and neither will anyone else in that county you can contact the Mayor and he'll get someone on it.

    I just called on a horse this week(animal control)the officer was real nice but unfortunately the horse was 'missing' when they went to look at it.So I don't know if it died or someone took it.The land owner was just letting someone board there, but two of the 3 horses were losing weight fast, they had no grass and I never seen anyone tending to them, don't know if they had water either.One horse was just hair and bones.Im going to call back on monday and see what they found out.
    Good luck w/ your situation.

    You need to take pictures, and call animal control, just like kitten val said. You need to tell them what is going on.
