The case of the guy here in Wyoming who was letting over 100 horses slowly starve to death was found guilty. Have not heard his sentence yet, or what will happen to horses that are still alive.
He was not feeding them, didn't want them, didn't want to give them away,didn't want to spend money on vet care, couldn't send them to slaughter to make some money, so let them sit in corrals to die. Foals with broken legs, horses to close to dying to get up, it was quite a mess.
Of course the anti slaughter folks tried to say it was better for the horses to die in the corrals since slaughter is so nasty and inhumane. They actually fought for this jerks rights, saying he was treated badly by the law who came and took the horses and that he should sue the law enforcement...
How sad is that.
