CHRN is NOT currently caring for these horses and this is NOT a request for donations!!!

El Paso County has a reputation for being soft on animal abuse, and we the undersigned demand accountability! We call upon the District Attorney (DA) Dan May to either charge Brian Holloway with felonies for the horses he starved and killed on Slocum Rd., or to issue a public statement of record explaining in detail why this can't be done.


On March 10, 2019, responding to tips from concerned citizens, El Paso County Sheriffs served a warrant at the Holloway Residence on Slocum Rd. in eastern El Paso County. Inside a large, recently-built barn scattered with expensive equipment, deputies encountered ten horses on the brink of death from starvation, confined to completely indoor stalls with no access to feed or forage. Even worse, scattered among the numerous empty stalls were two dead horses that had recently died miserable, thrashing deaths while their companions looked on.

Samples from the deceased horses have been analyzed, and the deputies documented the conditions of the horses and then confiscated them and removed them to a safe location.

However, Brian Holloway, the property owner, has not been charged with any crimes as of April 9, 2019. District Attorney Dan May’s staff is giving a different excuses to concerned citizens. Given the lack of severity in other recent appalling abuse cases, we the undersigned are concerned that Holloway may not be punished for this cruelty, and worse yet may be able to own animals in the future and subject them to a similar fate. 

Sign today to tell DA May that the citizens  of El Paso County and the people of Colorado are watching, and we won’t tolerate animal abuse!
