Justice for Livestock Allegedly Starved and Neglected

Target: Douglas D. Emery, Prosecuting Attorney for Owyhee County, Idaho

Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the couple who allegedly neglected and starved over 60 horses and cows, leading to the death of 15 animals.

Six horses and nine cows were reportedly found dead on a couple’s property. The remaining animals were reportedly malnourished and in deplorable condition. Demand justice for these innocent animals.

“I was able to see there were dead livestock laying everywhere, frozen into the ground. It was a horror show,” stated Deputy Sheriff Larry Kendrick. In addition to the 15 dead cows and horses, deputies with the Owyhee County Sheriff’s Office reportedly found 38 live horses and eight cows. The horses’ ribs reportedly showed through their coats and their hooves were overgrown.

The couple has been charged with 23 counts each of animal cruelty and failure to feed and water animals. The Idaho Horse Rescue has taken in some of the horses and the others are being cared for by reserve deputies. Sign below to demand that this couple receive the maximum penalty by law, if convicted.


Dear Prosecuting Attorney Emery,

Fifteen cows and horses were found dead on an Owyhee County property. Over 30 additional animals were also allegedly starved and neglected. We demand justice for these innocent animals.

“One of the agriculture investigators, in fact he said that in court, that it was the worst he had ever seen,” stated Sheriff Kendrick. He first spotted the line of dead animals from the property line. From there, deputies counted a total of 46 horses and 17 cows on the property. Those who were still alive were reportedly so malnourished that they continued to show signs of starvation a month after their rescue.

This alleged neglect cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.

    Baha’i Writings ~ “To the blessed animals, however, the utmost kindness should be exercised: the more the better it will be. Man is generally sinful and the animal is innocent Educate the children in their infancy in such a way that they may become exceedingly kind and merciful to the animals… The universe of God is a wonderful theatre upon the stage of which every created thing plays its part.”
    Hadith No. 557 ~ ”O Allah’s Apostle! Is there a reward for us in serving the animals? He replied: Yes, there is a reward for serving any animate.”
    Proverbs 12.10 ~ A righteous man has regard for the life of his animals.
    Psalm 34:16 ~ The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. God created all the animals
    Psalm 50:10 ~God cares for the animals. “Jesus said: ‘are not the five sparrows sold for two copper coins and not one of them is forgotten before God.
    Psalm 104 ~ All animals belong to God.

    Mahatma Gandhi ~ “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
