Bodies of 60 horses found; 2 charged in Wisconsin

The bodies of as many as 60 horses have been uncovered in two mass graves behind a farm in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin.

TV stations in Milwaukee report an initial search in early April uncovered 5 dead horses on the property, just west of Kenosha.

Since then, officers found the bodies of the remaining horses, 12 goats, and two cows. And the search isn’t over.

The farm’s owners, Paula and David White, were arrested and charged with animal mistreatment.

Starvation seems to have caused most of the deaths.

    The above comments pretty much explain it all on my feelings, I agree. I doubt these POS's will suffer anywhere near the suffering they caused. Poor animals!! :..(

    A week ago, i dreamed of taking a herd of horses up a mountain to feed, they were starving, but the mountain got covered in snow and the horses couldn't eat, so they came down the mountain but most of them broke their legs and had to be put down.

    This is all they get IF they are prosecuted and they don't appear to be repeat offenders at least not in Kenosha (how could no one know this was going on!!!!): Felony I – penalty is a fine of up to $10,000, or imprisonment of up to 3-1/2 years, or both; however, for a repeat offender, the term of imprisonment may increase up to 2 years with prior misdemeanor convictions, and up to 6 years with a prior felony conviction.

    Makes no sense. Farm animals cost money and are an investment.

    There is a case in Louisiana where as many horses starved by a thoroughbred race horse breeder. 30 or so were released by owner and two of them died. The sheriff, nor the DA, or the state police will arrest and charge that criminal. And that abuser is still allowed to run his horses he fed, at all the tracks in Louisiana.

    A loca horse rescue had to charter a helicopter and fly the farm and film all the skeletons to shame the owner into releasing some of the poor things. It has been 16 months and still nothing,

    I am grateful the law is doing something.

    They don't appear to have missed many meals themselves.
    Perhaps they should know what it feels like to go hungry for months on end…
