A woman in Randolph County, Indiana, has been charged after starved horses were found living in a tiny “mudhole” on her property on North Street in Union City. As reported by Fox 59 News, an animal control officer found six emaciated horses on November 16. WIBC News identifies 39-year-old Samantha Boyd as the responsible party.

ACO Joe Sheets found starved horses being held “in a pen that was not big enough for 6 animals.” After obtaining a warrant, the horses were seized from Boyd’s possession and taken to a veterinary clinic. An exam revealed that four of the six horses had zero body fat.

The horses are currently recovering at the Winchester/Randolph County Animal Shelter. Boyd is facing one misdemeanor count of cruelty to an animal; she could face up to a year in jail if she is found guilty.

A fundraiser has been started on behalf of the rescued horses – click here to learn more.

    ONE lousy misdemeanor count for STARVING SIX HORSES! If I were a parent in this community, I’d be OUTRAGED that it PAYS to be a SADISTIC VILE THUG TOWARD ANY ANIMAL, as IS evident here that you can just literally walk away from such egregious, INTENTIONAL abuse, YOU f*****g DEMONS. The fact that YOUR OWN ELECTED OFFICIALS do NOT give a SHIT about a living, sentient being is something from the HITLER ERA. I hoped this WAKES you people up to the FACT that if your OWN officials do NOT care about an animal’s life, THEY CERTAINLY DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOURS OR YOUR CHILDREN.

    What makes this even WORSE, is that YOU remedial turds want ALL OTHER MEMBERS OF SOCIETY TO PAY FOR THIS. It would please me greatly to hear on the news that Indiana was practically WIPED out from a series of EXTREME tornadoes, followed by CEASELESS FLOODING! Demon spawned maggot ASS WIPES!
