Justice for Horses Allegedly Starved and Neglected

Target: Brad King, State Attorney for Lake County, Florida

Goal: Demand that the woman who allegedly starved seven horses receive the maximum penalty under law.

Seven horses were allegedly starved nearly to the point of death. Their bones reportedly showed through their skin and they were dangerously malnourished. Their caregiver told deputies that one of the horses had no teeth and another had a problem maintaining weight. Demand justice for these poor horses.

“They were obviously malnourished,” stated Sgt. Jim Vachon of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. The horses were reportedly rescue horses under the care of Angel King at King’s Cove Horse Rescue. Deputies stated that the horses were so thin that their skin stretched over their bones and they scored very low on a scale used to measure malnourishment and emaciation. Though a plan was established with King to save the starving horses, she reportedly never implemented the plan.

All seven horses are now being cared for at an undisclosed location. King was charged with animal cruelty and is now in jail. Sign below and demand that King receive the maximum penalty under law, if convicted.


Dear State Attorney King,

Seven horses suffered tremendously when they were allegedly starved and neglected at King’s Grove Horse Rescue. The horses were so malnourished that their skin reportedly stretched over their bones. We demand justice for these innocent horses.

“She basically did nothing. They were so bad off the county veterinarian said they had to be taken immediately,” said Sgt. Vachon. King, the owner of the rescue, reportedly still did not possess any food or nutrients to help the emaciated horses two days after she was asked to implement their life-saving plan.

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

  1. It is tragic that more and more animal rescue places and animal sanctuaries are actually abusing the animals they “rescue”, often horribly.
    People tend to think that once an animal is sent to a rescue refuge or sanctuary, he or she will be treated well and be okay from then on. It’s terrible and sad that that’s not always the case.

    These places need to be monitored and inspected unannounced. I say starve the bitch and see how she likes. it.
