That is pretty awful... I don't think you should be angry with chicago though because... Sadly, the animal cruelty punishments available to the courts just arent very harsh. Just look at this site from years ago. This happened right on the other side of the pasture from the place I bought my horse. I remember whent he owner of these animals was alive, they were so pretty, I mean shiny and beautiful... and then look what happened. http://www.equinerescueleague.org/er...fordcounty.htm
They really really need to change the laws and the penalty's that go with them.
You know the odd thing on that story on the news... the horse actually looked like they were feeding it, so that means... they KNEW what they were doing... evil people don't deserve animals.
