See also

Based on a local complaint from a concerned citizen, authorities in Giles County, Virginia, knew it was important to check out a potential animal abuse case. On Dec. 30, the information about Lee Ann Mundy of Pembroke was released to the public.

The Giles County Sheriff’s Office investigated the allegations in the complaint. Subsequently, Lee Ann Mundy was cited and is now facing four separate charges of animal cruelty. She has also been summoned for four cases of inadequate care of animals.

Based on the local tip, the authorities checked out several horses on a small farm in the area. Police discovered three horses, four pot belly pigs, three dogs and a few other animals. All of them were underfed. The horses fared much worse – out of a body score of 10 points per horse, each of the three horses were judged to have a body score of two or lower. The horses had been suffering and starving for some time.

All of the animals were immediately confiscated and removed for treatment and steady nourishment and care. Most of the animals went to Roanoke Valley Horse Rescue.

Mundy is slated to attend an arraignment hearing on Jan. 3, 2014.

Meanwhile, Mundy was able to post bond [unsecured] of $2,000.
