Target: Farmersville Town Court Judge, Jennifer Holmes
Goal: Give maximum sentence to farm owners accused of neglecting over 600 animals and leaving a horse to freeze to death.
Over 600 neglected animals were reportedly seized from a farm after a driver noticed a horse lying on the ground under a blanket that was frozen to the ground. The poor horse was still alive, but had to be euthanized, and many of the rest require medical attention. The farm owners are known for selling poultry, duck eggs, and rabbit to locals who were under the impression they were doing a good deed by purchasing from local farmers.
This isn’t their first offense, according to reports. The owners faced similar charges years ago when 40 dogs were seized from their farm, but they got them back. Had they been punished appropriately and barred from owning animals after the first animal abuse charges, these new animals wouldn’t have had to suffer.
If it weren’t for the highway worker accidentally spotting the horse, these 600 animals would likely still be suffering. Sadly, the owners are reportedly moving to a new farm to most likely begin their third round of animal cruelty. They never should’ve been allowed to re-open a farm after their first offense, but to allow them to continue after their second offense is a tragic injustice. Demand that this couple be punished for the alleged cruelty and barred permanently from owning animals.
Dear Judge Holmes,
A horse was reportedly found lying under a blanket that had frozen to the ground. The SPCA reportedly seized over 600 other animals, many of which required medical attention. The farm owners had allegedly faced previous animal abuse charges and had their animals seized in the past and now they’re said to be on their way to another farm.
It’s a despicable injustice that they were allowed to allegedly continue inflicting abuse upon innocent animals. We demand that if this couple is found guilty of the animal cruelty charges, they are given the maximum penalty and permanently barred from ever owning animals again.
