Waupaca County Sheriff's Department: Don't Let These Five Neglected Horses Die!
Help urge the Waupaca County Sheriff's department to do something about these five clearly neglected horses in Clintonville, WI! They are emaciated, living largely off hay snuck into their enclosure by concerned individuals when several of them are ill and in need of special diets to even maintain their weight. Their hooves desperately need trimming, and two sickly studs need gelding to prevent breeding with the mares and creating more abused, unwanted horses.
Encourage law enforcement to step in before it's too late! Winter in Wisconsin is harsh -- and right around the corner -- and with no body fat and no shelter beyond a shed one horse is confined in without water and a tarp laughably put over a corral corner in feeble "compliance" with a token abatement order served by the Sheriff's Dept some or all of these animals will most assuredly not survive!

I'm contacting you about a case of animal neglect at N 9063 Highway 45 Clintonville, WI. Five horses there are in serious need of food and veterinary attention. Please remove these animals from these appalling conditions and release them into the custody of a reputable rescue, such as St. Francis Horse Rescue of Wisconsin, where they will be fed, sheltered and gelded to prevent any further unwanted, abused horses.
Their owner's feeble, late attempts at compliance with a token abatement order already served are not enough! I urge you to act now before it is too late: as you know, winter in Wisconsin is harsh -- and right around the corner -- and with no body fat and without proper shelter some or all of these animals will most assuredly not survive.
Thank you for your time, consideration and [hopefully] compassion.
