|CPSO investigates alleged animal cruelty|
As the record-shattering heat of the summer begins to decrease somewhat, Concordia Parish Sheriff Randy Maxwell reminds parish residents that along with the remaining high temperatures, there is still extra responsibility for outdoor animals.
"Horses, dogs and other animals that are completely unable to care for themselves depend on their owners to supply food and water and, in high temperatures, that means lots and lots of water just to make it through each day."
CPSO Lt. Chris Groh responded to two complaints of alleged animal cruelty within minutes of each other on Friday (8-27-10), with each involving horses that were in need of additional food and water.
Groh said all owners involved were given initial warnings. When he checked later in the day on the animals' conditions and to make certain they all had adequate food and water, as well as shelter, the owners had complied.
Maxwell stressed that it's against Louisiana law, as well as parish ordinances, to neglect or mistreat animals.
According to Louisiana law, "proper food" and "proper water" means providing each animal with daily food and water of sufficient quality and quantity to prevent unnecessary or unjustifiable suffering by the animal.
