Target: Attorney General E. Scott Pruitt
Goal: Punish man who allegedly dragged his horse behind an ATV.
A horse was treated for numerous scrapes and rope burns after her owner allegedly dragged her behind an ATV in Claremore, Oklahoma. Oran John Spencer was charged with animal cruelty after deputies got a tip about an injured horse on his property. Tell Attorney General Pruitt to push to make sure Spencer is adequately punished for his alleged animal cruelty.
The sheriff’s office got a warrant based on the horse’s condition and released her into the care of On the Right Trail Rescue after reports stated that she was covered in cuts and burns. Investigation into her owner led him to claim he was trying to teach her how to lead by using his ATV, which is not even a remotely safe or correct way to train or handle a horse. Since her seizure they have found that the horse is already very well halter trained.
Currently Spencer is facing charges and the sheriff’s officer is searching for another horse registered under his name in hopes of also getting it out of his care. This was a cruel act performed against an animal with no reasonable justification. She did not deserve this mistreatment and the damage it has most likely caused physically and mentally. Her owner should be put in jail for his alleged act of cruelty.
Dear Attorney General Pruitt,
A horse was dragged behind an ATV and suffered cuts and rope burns from the abuse, and her companion is still missing. Her owner is allegedly responsible for the abuse that was performed against this horse, who was well trained and comfortable with human handling. The horse is finally getting the treatment that she deserves, but the person responsible for the damage done to her needs to receive punishment for animal cruelty.
No animal should be pulled behind an vehicle, it is both dangerous and harsh to a creature with no understanding of what is happening or why. This is not a safe training technique and there was no reason for this horse to suffer the marks she did if the action had been performed with consideration for her comfort and safety. Give this horse justice by ensuring no other animal will be subjected to the same kind of treatment at the hands of this man.
