The Animal Legal Defense Fund, joined by the United States Equine Rescue League and a county animal cruelty investigator are suing three North Carolina residents for severely neglecting eight horses whom they starved in one case, literally to death and deprived of all veterinary care. ALDF will be fighting for permanent custody of the horses as well as the costs of caring for them.
Lacy, an Arabian mare, was pregnant and close to death from colic and the burden of carrying a foal with no food or nutritional support. Her hipbones, backbone, and ribs were all protruding from her skin, indicating an advanced state of malnutrition and starvation. She was rushed to the North Carolina State College School of Veterinary Medicine for critical care.
