Is there a number to call in MO for starving horses

I am tired of watching these horses suffer. They are standing in a foot of mud, no grass at all, they don't get any grain. They get hay but even that is poor quality. During the summer they get saddle sore after saddle sore from their backbones rubbing. They are nothing but skin and bones. They are confined to a tiny space. People like this don't need horses.

Call your local animal control and report it.

Also I would think if you don't know the number for animal control you could probably call your local vet or police department and they should be able to give you the number to call.

The police or sheriff's department can definitely transfer you to the right person to talk too. I would start with them. Check their website for their non emergency number.

Depends on county as to how much help you will get. Quite a bit...or nothing.

However, what I do in MO is call the Missouri State Highway Patrol as they can go anywhere and investigate anything in the state.

Call your local troop and tell them you want to make a neglect/abuse call about starving horses.

They have done more when I have called them out than 20 calls to sheriff office in 2 counties. People straightened up or got rid of horses they were mistreating.

Are these the same horses owned by the 14 year old girl that you said were well taken care of when you loaned your horse to her and then it got hurt? Maybe you should ask the vet when she returns to finish working on your horse.
It is strange, you know this girl for awhile, know the animals she has, but when you loan your horse to her and it gets hurt, NOW you want to turn her in for bad care of her horses????????

Exactly, wyoming. Sounds like sour grapes to me. Everything was hunky dory until HER horse got hurt, now this young girl is the devil incarnate.

I'd like to know why an 18 y/o is hanging around with a 14 y/o, anyway. In terms of maturity they should be MILES apart. Plus, there's guilt by association. If the OP thought all of this was fine and dandy before, she's just as guilty as the neglecter/abuser for not reporting her before now.

Isn't it interesting that she posted the story of her horse being hurt yesterday at 6:48 am and when she did not get the answers she wanted to hear, at 4:43 pm yesterday, she now wants to turn in the girls horses..........
Seems somebody is all about drama.....

Maybe made up internet drama.

I too wondered why an 18 year old is running with a 14 year old.
