So today I ran into animal control. One of my neighbor's cows got loose and I was unsuccessfully trying to catch them. The cows wouldn't even come for grain. The owner of the property had padlocked his gate so I couldn't get in the yard to return them and no one was home. It took a good 2 hours to get them caught. Good thing the police came as they had to break his padlock to the gate.
I asked if they did neglect cases and took them to my other neighbor with a starved horse. I've warned them several times that they need to feed him more, the horse has gotten out a few times and is a stallion so it goes after my mares. Last time I saw him he was skinny, hadn't had his feet done and I let it slide as I discussed some changes with the owners.
I don't know how he looks now. The horse is hidden in the very back of the property but since it is winter I know he is probably losing weight again.
The officer was there for 30 minutes. I'm assuming no one was home. Hopefully he will do something about it.
Last time I called animal control not much was done. So I guess we'll see.
