Dear District Attorney Webb,
Two horses were found dead on an abandoned Tuscaloosa property. Only one of them had been buried. A young colt was also found in poor condition. We demand justice for these innocent horses.
Sheriff’s deputies found the 1-year-old colt emaciated. It had allegedly been tied to a tree for quite some time. The colt was removed from the property and is being housed at a shelter, where it is improving. Unfortunately, two horses died due to the alleged neglect. The horses’ owner turned herself in and is being held on bond.
This horrific cruelty cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.
