This story shows the depths to which some people will sink. I look forward to the day these criminals are caught.
From Barnmice news
Animal control officials announced that a US$7500 reward has been
offered for anyone who comes forward with information about the identity
of the person responsible for leaving a starving horse on a street in
South Gate, a community south-east of downtown Los Angeles.
The horse was in appalling condition and obviously had not received
adequate nutrition for quite some time. Neighbors found her in the
morning just lying in the street and reported the crime to the South
East Area Animal Control Authority of Downey. Kind samaritans brought
her some hay and an apple so at least she received some gestures of
kindness before she was released from her suffering.
The reward was donated by Minnesota Vikings football player, Jared
Allen, and Denise White who is a sports manager. Their contributions
were added to an earlier donation by the HSUS. Both Mr. Allen and Ms.
White were deeply affected by the story and pictures of the horse.
The South East Area Animal Control Authority investigators are following up on leads and will again canvass the area where the horse was left to
die, passing out flyers stating the updated reward amount. Anyone with
information on this crime is asked to contact SEAACA at (562) 803-3301 (562) 803-3301 or at www.seaaca.org. Identities of whistleblowers are confidential.
