breaking horseMADISONVILLE, Ky. (7/26/13) – In response to a complaint received in the Hopkins County Attorney’s Office on Tuesday, July 23, 2013, three defendants have been charged with Cruelty to Animals 2nd Degree and four horses seized.
 
The Hopkins County Attorney’s Office was made aware that at least one horse was being neglected at property located on Randall Drive in Madisonville. Karey Roy Deardorff, Assistant Hopkins County Attorney, has worked closely with investigators over the last 72 hours to get these horses into the protective custody of the Hopkins County Humane Society.
 
“As both a prosecutor and a board member of the Hopkins County Humane Society, I take animal cruelty cases very seriously” stated Deardorff.
 
In late 2010, the Hopkins County Attorney’s Office prosecuted a case in which 13 horses were found to be severely neglected on the same Randall Drive property. “Due to the history of these defendants, our primary focus is for the safety of all the horses on the property” said Deardorff.
 
Earlier today, she met with a Hopkins County District Judge to request not only seizure of the horse on the property which shows immediately signs of neglect, but further requested that the Hopkins County Humane Society be allowed to seize all horses on the property.
 
If you are interested in fostering please contact the Hopkins County Humane Society at 270-821-8965.
