A Zap, North Dakota, man is accused of contributing to the death of 15 horses and 11 foals, and neglecting dozens of other horses. As reported by the Bismarck Tribune, deputies with the Mercer County Sheriff’s Department made the grim discovery on February 20 at Shanan Weigum's property.
Weigum allegedly fed moldy hay and denied water access to the animals. Four lambs were found deceased at the property, and 39 horses were in "poor condition." One young steer was in such bad health that he had to be put down.
Weigum is facing a felony animal cruelty charge, and with your help, we will push court officials to give him the maximum sentence! Please sign today, this situation is heartbreaking, and completely unacceptable.
