Horses Confiscated Following Abuse Investigation

Jul 10th, 2013

Fremont County Sheriff’s deputies and Colorado Humane Society (CHS) agents seized two horses from a Penrose resident following an investigation of alleged neglect and cruelty.  Angelyn Daniels, 20, was issued a summons for two counts of Cruelty to Animals, a class 1 misdemeanor.  Deputy Megan Richards obtained a search warrant for Daniels’ two horses after Deputy Richards, CHS agents and a veterinarian observed that the horses were dehydrated, had minimal food available and had various injuries sustained from unsafe living conditions. Authorities gave both horses very low body condition (weight) scores and felt removal of the horses was necessary for their survival. CHS agents transported both horses to a rehabilitation facility pending a disposition of Daniels’ court case.

Captain Don Pinover stated that Colorado Humane Society agents have been a valuable asset to the Sheriff’s Office in investigating reports of animal neglect/abuse and in providing a safe environment for seized animals.

Cases of suspected animal abuse should be reported to local law enforcement or the Colorado Humane Society at 1-800-249-5121.
