DEMAND JUSTICE FOR DR DRIP. CHAMPION RACEHORSE
St. Landry Parish, #Louisiana
We demand the St Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office, DA pursue felony aggravated animal cruelty charges against the person or persons responsible for the abuse and torture of champion #racehorse, Dr Drip. and we ask that, once the perpetrator is found, the maximum sentencing is imposed. On June 20, 2017 the St Landry Parish Sheriff’s Department and Animal Control responded to an #animalcruelty complaint. The sheriff’s department found an equine, now known to be Dr Drip, a champion racehorse, in horrific condition. He been #starved , and was suffering from #burns down his entire back. Dr Drip’s flesh, open wounds and #exposed bones were #infested with maggots, to the point that maggots could be heard feasting on his flesh and bone. Dr Drip's #vertebrae was fully exposed in several sections in what appear to be “saddle sores” indicating he had been #ridden in this condition.
On the Morning of June 21, 2017 Dr Drip went down and when urged to get up, his rotting flesh #slid off his body. The #pain he suffered in the hands of his abusers is unimaginable. Dr Drip had to be #euthanized.💔 The persons responsible for this heinous and deliberate act of aggravated animal cruelty must face justice. 🙏🏻 Please, sign and share:
