Horses Allegedly Neglected and Abandoned Deserve Justice

Target: Brian Goettl, District Attorney for Jessamine County, Kentucky

 Goal: Demand that the man who allegedly starved his horses and left them in a trailer for 24 hours be sentenced to the maximum penalty possible if found guilty.

A man allegedly abandoned his horses, leaving them in a trailer for 24 hours straight. The horses reportedly appeared underweight and were found standing in their own feces. The man stated that the people who made the complaint were just trying to take his horses. Demand that justice is served for these innocent horses.

“The conditions kept getting worse. They were in about three inches of manure,” stated Jenny Hasson. She and other concerned neighbors filed a complaint against 70-year-old Paul Schember after he reportedly abandoned the horses on private property. She also reported that at least one of the horses appeared emaciated. Schember stated that he got permission from someone who turned out not to be the owner of the property. He claimed that all of the other complaints are lies.

The officers at Jessamine County Animal Care and Control are investigating the claims. Sign below and demand that this man receive the maximum penalty in this case if he is found guilty of this horrific crime.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Goettl,

A man has been accused of abandoning his horses on private property and leaving them standing in a trailer for 24 hours straight. The man denies the accusations. We demand that justice is served for these innocent horses.

“It was like every other day at least two [to] three times a week we were picking up his canines for running at large,” stated Deputy Director Frank Ruggiero of Jessamine County Animal Care and Control. This deputy director has filed four other criminal complaints against Schember for related accusations involving Schember’s animals. Most recently, two horses were found abandoned in a barn without access to food or water.

This neglect cannot be allowed to continue. We demand that the animals be removed from this man’s custody and that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Then, O ye friends of God! Ye must not only have kind and merciful feelings for mankind, but ye should also exercise the utmost kindness towards every living creature.
    The physical sensibilities and instincts are common to animal and man.
    Man is, however, negligent of this reality and imagines that sensibility is peculiar to mankind, therefore he practices cruelty to the animal…..
    In reality what difference is there in physical sensations! Sensibility is the same whether you harm man or animal: there is no difference. Nay, rather, cruelty to the animal is more painful because man has a tongue and he sighs, complains and groans when he receives an injury and complains to the government and the government protects him from cruelty; but the poor animal cannot speak, it can neither show its suffering nor is it able to appeal to the government.
    If it is harmed a thousand times by man it is not able to defend itself in words nor can it seek justice or retaliate…..
    Therefore one must be very considerate towards animals and show greater kindness to them than to man…. Man is generally sinful and the animal is innocent; unquestionably one must be more kind and merciful to the innocent. Baha’i Faith Witings

  5. Wendy Morrison says:

  6. Please persecute this horrible person! !! He should never be allowed to have any animals ever again! !!!!

  7. Jaime Perez says:

    This disgusting piece of garbage deserves the same treatment that he inflicted on these poor horses. What is wrong with people anymore? There is just no kindness or compassion for innocent animals.

  8. Leave that bastard to starve to death . Kill the bastard

  9. Nancy Raymond says:

    Paul Schember should be made to live in that vile filthy trailer with the three inches of horse manure – THEN hang this miserable old man publicly – he deserves no less.
