Target: Holland & Muirden, Animal Law Firm
Goal: Prosecute animal owner for neglect and abuse of a dog, a deceased pony and her unborn foal
A pony that was found in an Ohio county with a chain embedded in her neck has died after being taken to a nearby animal hospital. Worse yet, this pony was pregnant and the foal that was almost ready to be born died as well. The owner of the pony claims that she was fine mere hours before she was found at an abandoned site along with a starving dog. Despite the evidence that indicates these animals were neglected for an extended period of time, their owner has yet to be charged with any sort of crime. Demand that lawyers pursue justice for these abused and abandoned animals.
Ohio animal cruelty law states that it is illegal to abandon any domestic animal and that perpetrators will either be fined or imprisoned for doing so. In light of this information, it is hard to understand why the owner of these poor animals has not been punished. The Humane Society is delving into a more in-depth investigation, but for any legal action to happen, prosecutors need to be on board as well.
The owner of the abandoned pony and dog cannot go unpunished. Cases like this one often go unprosecuted because the responsibility of initiating criminal proceedings fall into the hands of non-profits like the Humane Society. In many instances, these non-profits do not have enough money to effectively build a case against the perpetrators of animal abuse. The law firm Holland & Muirden has been appointed to act as special prosecutor for animal cruelty cases in Ohio counties. These lawyers have the expertise and financial means to prosecute the perpetrator of this crime. Urge them to take action today and file a lawsuit against this cruel and neglectful owner.
Dear Holland and Muirden,
I understand that you are the primary defenders of abused animals that fall under Ohio jurisdiction. I am extremely disturbed by a recent case that involves the death of a pony and her unborn foal as well as the abuse of a dog. After several calls were placed regarding an abandoned animal, investigators found a pregnant pony and a small dog at a uninhabited farm site. Both animals had chains embedded in their skin and appeared to be neglected and starving.
Worse yet, even though both animals were transferred to a nearby veterinary hospital, the pony and her unborn foal died. Though the dog is still alive, it will surely be scarred for the rest of its life. Please stand up for these abused animals and show Ohio residents that such animal cruelty will not be tolerated. Make a motion to prosecute the owner of these animals today.
