I need to vent. Blatant neglect and abuse. At least the way I see it - Page 2 - The Horse Forum

stop feeding them.
And take a lot of pictures.
The animal control can take your word for it, and if they don't see something "bad enough" then the animals will be boned so to speak, and the "owner" will be mad at you.
If you take pictures and RECORD your observations, then you have a better chance at things changing for the better.

I understand you don't want to take away a little girl's puppy...but think of it this way:

taken away
or
dead?

Thanks. I hadn't thought of taking pictures. That'll be interseting to be sneaky about it. UGHH..wish we could have seen this coming and not moved here.

The first thing I would do is take the dog & cat to a vet or shelter & have 'something' done. Especially the cat. Sneak them away if you have to.
You'll make yourself broke enabling her. You could put that money into a nicer place.
This whole story is so sad.

I hate to say this but, imo if you don't do something, you are just as guilty as Hagatha

I have turned her into animal contro. I agree that I would be just as guilty. Already today things have changes, so I'm guessing there was a visit. 3 critters are getting fixed tomorrow and the horse is really well taken care of. Thank you all for the kick in the butt I needed. And I let her know today that I wouldn't be feeding her horses anymore.

Keep us posted. But how does a horse get really well taken care of in a day?
I thought she did the home remedy castration. I would make a follow up phone call and see what there plan of action is.

I would advise you to get law enforcement involved, you can remain anonymous and there would be no way she could prove you reported her.
Of course she could always assume and make things hard on you but I would take that risk just for the sake of the animals and showing her child that treating animals like this is not okay.

EDIT: I posted this before reading the comments on the 2nd page......so glad you reported her..but I also agree with churumbeque.....how does a horse that was in such bad shape get really well taken care of in one day?...also I would not call again right now if things look like they are getting better but I would def keep a close eye and call them again if things start to get worse again.

I see where this is coming from on the don't call again right now thing but it is good to stay on top of the authorities honestly... I turned in a person around where I live for abuse and neglect, the sheriff visited told them get things right and done or we are taking all the horses, they got things going for maybe a month then it was worse than before! Now the worst little mare is literally nothing but bone and looks 20 years older than she is and about 99%dead, a mare that was somewhat nice looking is now bone (both these girls are still being ridden!) several babies that have been severely injured and not doctored in any way bc they can't get near them. A lot of other horses with a lot of problems. None get any feed and barely any hay. Oh and get this! ALL the mares are being bred back!! Including a 25 year old mare that her last foal was born dead!

Wow what a nighmare, I feel really bad for the animals.
But I feel SICK to my stomach for that child.
I hope somebody is keeping an eye out for that little girl. People who abuse and neglect animals, usually aren't the best parents.
Good luck finding a better place for your animals and your family...

Horses are proof that God love's us and wants us to be happy!
