Sheriff’s Office Releases Statement About Possible Mistreatment Of Injured Horse

Published: July 22, 2022 at 01:53 PM Author: Penny Eims



Marathon County, Wisconsin – On Thursday, the Marathon County Sheriff’s Office issued a news release about a horse, in the Town of Ringle, who was possibly being mistreated. According to the authorities, concerns about neglect or mistreatment were sparked on social media after video and photos were circulated showing an injured rear leg.

The images show a leg that appears to be bloodied and severely injured.

The authorities have stated that a veterinarian came out to the property to examine the horse, and determined that the injury is “consistent with a cut from barbed wire fencing” and it is being treated with a red salve.

The release states:

The veterinarian indicated that the wound is healing but will take time due to the horse being nearly 30 years old. Additionally, the veterinarian stated that the owner who is known to take in rescue or injured horses is providing proper medical attention and will continue to administer the bandages and salve. The veterinarian has prescribed additional antibiotics and will follow-up in a few days to continue monitoring the injury.

The authorities determined that there is no mistreatment and as such, there will be no criminal charges.

Unforgivable to let an innocent live in that kind of pain for all his life. This person is heartless who could do such a thing. Arrest them. Felony abuse. This is horrific!

Well it doesn’t look like the horse had seen any type of treatment in the photo, possibly after the photo was taken. I don’t believe there was no abuse here, the leg looks like it’s severely infected and untreated.
