New Animal Cruelty Cases Raise Questions About Ohio Laws
When humane agents arrived at a Perry County farm this weekend, they were sickened by what they found. Nearly a dozen horses were so emaciated from hunger and malnutrition, their ribs showed through their sides and several had tried to eat the bark from trees near their pen.  Agents are concerned that current Ohio law might not prevent the horses from being returned to their neglectful owner.  One of the agents who helped take more than 250 dogs from a Richland County puppy mill said the conditions were so deplorable she literally had to step outside to keep from retching.  After several convictions, the operators allegedly fled the stricter animal laws in New Jersey and came to Ohio where they could run their puppy mill in relative safety.
