Target: Richard Healey, District Attorney
Goal: Prosecute alleged abuser of horses and other farm animals to fullest extent of law
Cindy Denninger is being charged with 15 counts of animal cruelty after several birds, cows, and horses were taken from her farm in Sodus, N.Y. According to an animal welfare investigator, the woman had been reprimanded multiple times for neglectful conditions.
Denninger’s farm was littered with debris and devoid of food. Two horses were already dead. The surviving horses were so malnourished that they resorted to eating pieces of the wooden fence. One horse’s survival is uncertain after suffering an untreated broken leg. All of the horses were emaciated, and some had far more severe injuries.
Denninger’s daughter verbally attacked the animal welfare investigator on the scene and referred to some of the horses as “money makers.” Several people who knew the woman claimed that she neglected animals before, according to WHAM news. Neighbors claimed to have called the police multiple times, and there was even evidence that a Finger Lakes racetrack owner knew she was not a reliable owner. Denninger claimed to be “rescuing” animals, while she was reportedly selling them on Craigslist.
There is currently a warrant out for Denninger’s arrest, however she is in hiding. Sign this petition to demand that she be found and charged with felony animal cruelty counts for every injured animal.
Dear Richard Healey,
Many were disheartened to hear about the abuse of several horses on a Sodus farm. Cindy Denninger’s horses should have been seized the first time animal investigators visited the farm. The least that can be done now is to capture her and charge her with felony animal cruelty.
There are two dead horses, other sick and dying farm animals, and possibly more deaths to follow in the coming days. There were multiple local stables that she could have sent her horses to, but instead she apparently let them slowly starve. Now she has disappeared.
Please capture and charge Cindy Denninger with 15 counts of felony animal cruelty.
