PRECINCT 4 CONSTABLES SEIZE SEVERAL HORSES AFTER A VERY SAD SCENE

Just before 11 a.m. Montgomery County Precinct 4 deputy constables Don Smith and Lt. Mark Seals responded to check a location on East Terrace Drive off FM 1314 and Old Sorters Road for a cruelty to animal call.  When they arrived on the scene they found a dog tied at the driveway with a six foot logging chain. A bucket of water sat next to him with more mosquitos than water in it. Trash was scattered around the front yard, sewage flowing onto the ground.

When they got around the back trash had been dumped out the back door on a large pile. Also a ditch separating this property and the school property was full of close to one hundred bags of household garbage. Kids were playing on the school yard within one hundred feet of it.

Also in the back were four horses which were all in a state of extreme malnutrition. The worst was a horse which Smith said should weigh close to one-thousand pounds. That horse was only approximately six-hundred pounds and so weak it could not get up. Lying in it’s own urine and feces, it had dug a circular hole from spinning around in an attempt to stand. It’s leg was rubbed raw of hair from the other leg rubbing against it.

Three other horses were standing but in very poor health. Tree bark was taken off the trees as high as the horses could reach. Fence boards were almost chewed in two.

The SPCA from Houston responded and after Judge Mett’s signed a seizure order they were loaded to be taken back to the SPCA. A vet also responded to the scene and was forced to put the weakest horse down. He stated that when they get so under nourished their electrolytes are so out of order they seldom make it.

The owner must appear in front of Judge Mett’s within ten days to show why the horses should not be taken away from him. If he doesn’t appear the animals will be awarded to the SPCA by Judge Mett’s.

The Montgomery County Health Department also responded to the scene and investigated the raw sewage and garbage dumped. He will have 30 days to get the property back in order
