When is the state/county going to get their act together and enforce the laws or put stronger laws on the books that deal with this problem? What is wrong with you people. GET THE LEAD OUT!!

I totally agree with ssMarilyn, including the fact that current Minnesota laws are NOT strong enough. I grew up in Minneapolis but I now live in the state of Virginia. Here we have much stronger anti-neglect and anti-cruelty laws and if a person is convicted of breaking them, he or she will pay thousands of dollars in fines, will have ALL livestock removed from their property, and will be prohibited from ever having livestock again. Some people have even done jail time for this.

Minnesota's cruelty laws are a joke, virtually non-existent. Beef them up legislators! Copy Virginia's laws, you don't need to re-invent the wheel. Just do it! This guy should be in jail, and never be allowed to own livestock again.

I'm going to contact this reporter. This man is a menace! His "hay" is ditch hay that he cuts off the side of the road. His "grain" is oat screenings. I brought supplements and extra hay for a mare there once and he freaked on me because she was getting too fat! All of her ribs and hip bones were still showing!
