Please sign and share this petition everywhere to gain justice for these abused horses and have the abuser held accountable on a permanent basis so that he will never, ever be allowed to own another animal as long as he lives!!!!!!!
A woman in the Putnam County, W. VA area noticed that horses in her neighbor's yard were in deplorable condition; so she alerted the authorities. The animals were emaciated with their hips sticking out and no meat on their ribs. He horses were living in deplorable conditions. Putnam County Sheriff's deputies say four malnourished horses were seized from a farm along Custer Ridge Road and another horse was found dead.
The owners of the Cobb's were arrested and charged with animal cruelty although Ms. Cobb denies the charges and says she took care of the animals. Deputies say the horses are now under the care and supervision of a veterinarian. The main problem is that Mr. Cobb has been charged previously with animal abuse; he abused a group of basset hounds several years previously. They bassets were taken away but that's it!! Why on earth was he ever allowed to own these horses??
As it turns out, Mr. Cobb, who wasn't supposed to own another animal, married the woman with the horses who were in good condition at the time. He should not have been allowed to own the horses. Through some type of loop hole, this poor-excuse-for-a-man took on the "care" of these horses by starving them!! We need to find justice for the starving and dead horses; we have to see to it that Mr. and Mrs. John and Gail Cobb of Putnam, W. Virginia never, ever own or even handle another animal as long as he lives!!!!!!!!!!!
Putnam Count, W. VA Animal and Law Enforcement Officials – Why on earth did you allow a convicted animal abuser like Mr. Cobb from ever owning and harming another animal. He was convicted of animal abuse and cruelty with basset hounds in the past and through some loop hole, you allowed this person to own and further abuse other animals like these precious horses. Please stop the abuse and do not let abuser like him become repeat offenders!!!
