In McCurtain County, Oklahoma, a disturbing Facebook photo of a man standing on a horse while holding a whip as the helpless animal's legs were tied together, garnered thousands of views and comments concerning the deliberate act of alleged animal cruelty.
Two weeks ago, the McCurtain County Sheriff's Office stated a report was filed and handed to the district attorney's office for review. According to District Attorney Mark Matloff, no animal cruelty charges have been filed against the horse's owner, Jeromy Mixon
Despite repeated requests from viewers, area residents and animal advocates, the horse has not been seen. Rumors of the horse having died have circulated widely through social media although Mixon allegedly claims the horse is fine.
Please sign and demand Sheriff McClain return to Mixon's residence and demand inspection of the horse and have its condition evaluated by a licensed veterinarian and demand District Attourney Mark Matloff charge Mixon with animal cruelty.
