Animal Rights Group to Protest Sheriff's Dept.

Monroe, Wis. - The same organization that led the charge against the Green County Sheriff's Department earlier this month isn't finished.

Timothy Green, Vice President of Communications for the group says "Authorities must be held accountable for their actions, or in this case, lack of actions". So far, the group has filed complaints with the United States Department of Agriculture, Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Wisconsin Department of Justice, Green County District Attorney's Office, Green County Law Enforcement Board, and the Wisconsin Attorney General.

The USDA dismissed the Global Conservation Group's first complaint stating "The care of these ponies would only be covered by the federal Animal Welfare Act if they were being used for very specific purposes such as research, exhibition."

As a last resort, the organization's Division of Legal Affairs is preparing a civil case to bring to court if they feel as though the Green County Sheriff's Office is not taking steps to correct their actions.

Below is the Global Conservation Group's official press release that was made public earlier today regarding their protest plans:

The Green County Sheriff's Office continues to refuse to take action against a negligent owner who leaves his animals outside in dangerous temperatures without adequate shelter. As a result, the Global Conservation Group will be protesting the Sheriff's Department on February 14, 2014.
The protest will begin at 4:00pm and end at 5:00pm. Participants will be peacefully holding posters to raise awareness and encourage the public to voice their opinion.
The demonstration will take place at 1016 16th Ave. Monroe, Wisconsin 53566.
