Justice for 23 Horses Starved to Death on Olympic Wrestler’s Property

Target: Jim Currell, Prosecutor Sergeant

Goal: Severely prosecute Bruce Akers after 23 dead horses were found on his property.

More than 40 sick, dead or dying horses were found on the property of a former Olympic wrestler in Australia. Some of the dead horses had apparently been piled together. After seeing “leg movement in the air,” a Melbourne man made the grisly discovery on his neighbor’s property.

Bruce Akers, the owner of the horses and the property where they were discovered, has been charged with 92 counts of animal cruelty. While bringing charges against Akers is the right step, it must not be viewed as the end of this tragic story. Mr. Akers seems to show little remorse for fate of the animals under his care. His lawyer, Emily Buchanan, has even tried to deflect blame by noting that reports of asbestos contamination at a nearby dump.

Call on prosecutors to take Mr. Akers alleged animal abuse seriously and, if he is found guilty, ensure that he is thoroughly punished. The person responsible for the tragic neglect, abuse and cruel deaths of so many animals must be made to understand the extent of his wrongdoing.


Dear Prosecutor Sergeant Jim Currell,

It has been reported that a chilling scene of animal cruelty has occurred. A man, having seen unusual movement, discovered a horse starving in its paddock. When authorities were summoned to investigate, they found 23 dead horses on the property–some of them were even piled together, along with another couple dozen of sick or dying horses.

The owner of the property and the horses, Bruce Akers, has been charged with 92 counts of animal cruelty. While it is promising that charges have been brought against the alleged abuser and the surviving horses are being re-homed, these should only be the first steps. The Herald Sun reports that, rather than appearing contrite as the charges against him were read out, Mr. Akers appeared “stone-faced.” Moreover, his lawyer has tried to deflect blame by noting that reports of asbestos contamination at a nearby dump.

Please zealously prosecute your case against Mr. Akers to ensure that, if he is found responsible for the deaths of the horses under his care, he understands the suffering that he caused and can never again harm another animal.

  2. wendy dearn says:

    Another evil committed, how long will it take to bring prosecution for these vile acts, penalty’s need to be hard hitting but its said over and over again what is wrong, makes no sense.

  3. Sonja Beyer says:

    It is ghastly to think that animal abuse will never stop. Sometimes it is just too much to read or hear about those horrificly cruel actions of mankind – we are supposed to be “humane” humans and to take care of our fellow creatures!

  4. lynn woods says:

    put him in a pen and starve him let him know what it’s like punish him good and make sure he never sees another horse let alone own one

  5. The only punishment fitting for this scumbag is chaining him up and allowing him to starve to death!!! Of course, I’d be eating an extravagant meal in front of ‘him’ every single day, and laughing at his circumstances. After the fucking scumbag kicks the bucket, kick his carcass to the curb and let the garbage trucks haul it off to the dump where it belongs.

  6. Surely this brutal fuken shit piece of scum can have justice doled out on him by people that know him. Take him into the bush hog tie cut his penis off with blunt knife shove in his filthy mouth and rape his dirty fuken ass with huge tree limb let him bleed out slow. This horrible abuse of animals CAN NOT be allowed. As for fuk wit David Foster PISS OFF
