This is so very sad to read and how unfortunate for the animals. We raise our goats and sheep for meat the theory being they take care of us we take care of them. Over the years we have rescued a variety of animals the worst a 20yr stallion he was expected to live a few days he lived a year. At least in Van Burren Co. Mi the laws are such that if there is food and water AVAILIBLE it does not say ACCESSIBLE to the animal then the animal cannot be forcible removed. Even though our stud had not eaten or drank in days there was food in the barn and water in the pasture for him. It seems that it was his problem he couldn't unlach his way to small stall to get to it. As bad as this horse was he could not be taken w/o owner permission, after 6mo. we had to buy the horse or give him up to the owner. Now I understand sometimes $ gets tight we have all been there, but if you can't afford to feed them sell them!! Give them away run them through the sale barn. Even if they get sold for meat it's better than dying slow because they have no food or water. Sorry this just makes me so mad!!!!!! Maybe we are strange people but here the kids (our sons) eat, then the animals then us. They don't have a choice if they are to be here or not we do and as parents and farm owners it's our job to take care of them first.....enough said gotta go I am having a problem focusing on the screen, also the boys want to eat.
