Prosecute Kountz Arena for the neglect and abuse of Young Doc Bar.

This petition had 5,961 supporters

The goal of this petition is to bring justice to Young Doc Bar. We want to bring awareness to the lack of ethical and responsible treatment of the horse and the absence of proper care. Kountz Arena should not be allowed to conduct business in a manner that condones practices or lack of practices that result in the suffering of animals.

On Saturday, March 28th 2015, the horse named Young Doc Bar was found on the ground of the Kountz Arena  in Bozeman, Montana by a horse show patron in the state depicted in the images accompanying this petition. Authorities responded but were unable to site the facility or owners of Young Doc Bar for neglect or abuse because a vet was called to the site. It was advised the animal be euthanized. It had been stated by a Kountz Arena employee that the horse had been injured since December 2014. 

This horse had been used as a stud, fathering many foals on the Kountz's property who were then offered for sale. Young Doc Bar was offered at stud for many years and presumably was quite a lucrative animal to own for the Kountzs. He deserved basic medical care. Help bring justice to this animal by signing this petition to prosecute Kountz Arena and bring justice and awareness for Young Doc Bar.
