Investigation Underway of Potential Animal Abuse
The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) is now conducting an investigation which started from a photo being placed on social media of an apparent dead horse near a horse trailer with the back legs possibly bound or tied. Someone allegedly commented with the photo that the horse committed suicide.
The LCSO and CPD Dispatch have received many calls from all over the United States about this photograph which was allegedly placed online this morning.
Our office is continuing with attempts to locate persons of interest about the posting on the internet and determine if this photo was obtained elsewhere online or was actually taken here in Livingston County.
As we are aware of the potential problem, please call only if you have first-hand information as to what actually happened and/or who is responsible.
We always appreciate your information and TIPS, 660-646-0515, dispatch at 660-646-2121, or submit a TIP through our website at www.livcoso.org
