Another starvation case… but the good news, in this county (Josephine, Oregon) there is a special prosecutor that is available through grant funding for animal abuse cases. Josephine County has requested that prosecutor be called in for this case.
Let us help not only feed these innocent horses… but also we have an opportunity to give back to a community who has worked so to insure support for animal abuse cases.
Oregon has the nation’s first dedicated, full-time animal cruelty prosecutor, Deputy District Attorney Jake Kamins, who is funded by a three-year grant from the Animal Legal Defense Fund. Pitts says that Kamins will get the case.
THIS IS A HUGE OPPORTUNITY to tell them we appreciate their stand on animal abuse cases!
These horses are being cared for by Strawberry Mountain Mustangs – which is the Rescue that was very successful in re-feeding the famous mare, Amazing Grace. Do you remember her? She was one of our first Bucket Fund cases long ago. The mare was 560 upon intake. Yet she lived for over a year – gaining most of her weight back and living happily. Sadly, the starvation’s internal devastation finally took her. But, Grace knew food and love during her last year.
MEET ‘THE JOSEPHINE 5’ – STARVED on purpose.
All are being fed the UC Davis diet. All deserve to have their owner prosecuted.
From the Strawberry Mountain Mustang Rescue:
We don’t believe any of the horses are related.
2 year old colt – Odin (heavy parasite load, several days of the first week dealing with colic)
7 year old dark bay mare – Suzy (dominant mare, aggressive toward the others and must be kept separate)
7 year old TB type mare – name TBD (body score 1 on arrival, required IV fluids the first day)
11 year old registered sorrel mare – Sierra (colic Wednesday the 12th, recovered quickly)
15 year old light bay mare – Persephone

LET’S HELP THEM DEFEND THEMSELVES IN COURT! AND EAT!
It fills me with fight to know that a special prosecutor is a possibility. This case is very well documented. I would really like to see the owners take responsibility for this.
Any Starbucks change? Seat cushion change? Sitting on the counter change? Please and Thank you very, very much!
