Action Alert: Police Ignore Pets Left In -40 Degree Weather

See also

Two weeks ago when the temperatures were well below negative 40 degrees, two ponies had nothing to protect themselves against the elements aside from a couple oil barrels! The Global Conservation Group received three urgent reports, and the organization dispatched a Cruelty Investigation Department caseworker to examine the case. Some of the callers also said they saw baby puppies dying from the cold at the suspect's residence.

The animals were in clear distress suffering from the elements, in fact, equine veterinarians that the Global Conservation Group consulted with agree that ponies left outdoors in those highly dangerous temperatures suffer from frost bite, hypothermia, and more.

Multiple local residents immediately filed police reports, however the Sheriff's Department claim "there is nothing we can do" and took no action to help these animals. The fact is, Green County's own animal cruelty ordinance states that "Any person owning or harboring an animal shall provide sufficient protection from the weather." (Chapter C 7-4-13-2)
"No person shall treat any animal in a cruel manner which causes unnecessary pain or
suffering or unjustifiable injury or death." (A 7-4-13-2)

Please join the Global Conservation Group in politely asking the Green County Sheriff's Department in Wisconsin to take action against the owner of these animals on County Road CC:

Green County Sheriff's Department
2827 6th Street / PO Box 473
Monroe, WI 53566

Phone Number: 608 328 9400
