A video, showing a horse being pulled behind a truck in Grand County, Colorado, has sparked an animal cruelty investigation. The video began circulating on Facebook over the weekend and it prompted concerned animal lovers to reach out to the Grand County Sheriff’s Office.
The law enforcement agency addressed the deluge of complaints it had received in a Facebook post on Monday, writing:
On November 24, 2019, the Grand County Sheriff’s Office was informed about a suspected animal cruelty incident in unincorporated Grand County, near Grand Lake. The incident involved a horse that had been pulled by a truck, which was recorded and shared on social media. This resulted in an extensive social media following, and public requests for an investigation.
The Sheriff’s Office, with the assistance of Grand County Animal Care and Control, and the Colorado Humane Society, have initiated an investigation into this incident. Many citizens had asked the Sheriff’s Office to immediately charge the suspects in this incident based on the video; however, to maintain the integrity of our criminal justice system, and as with any case, we will be conducting a complete investigation and make any formal charging decisions at the conclusion of the investigation.
No further information about the investigation has been released.
