29 year old Chad Moore pled guilty on Tuesday, March 2, 2010 to six counts of abandonment. Prosecutors then dropped six counts of animal cruelty against Moore. Besides the jail time and the order to stay away from animals, Moore will have to pay $2000 in fines and restitution.


Moore, a former horse trainer, was arrested in January after a raid on a farm in Tate Township. Animal control officers found ten horses dead and six more animals alive, but starving. Moore spent several days on the run before he was arrested.


The surviving animals were taken to a nearby farm in Bethel. Two have since died. The rest, it appears, are on the road to recovery.
