Even through a global crisis, it seems animal abuse and neglect never takes a break. Unbelievably, in the last five days, we assisted animal control with not one, but TWO emergency neglect cases. The situations are ongoing, but the first case involved the rescue of a sweet aged Nubian Goat. She was crippled and barely able to walk on her own. Her hooves had clearly not been taken care of in a very long time. She had a raging infection in her ear from her ear tag. We are happy to report that, after being seen by our vet, she is doing MUCH better. The infection is clearing up rapidly. She’s received one hoof trim so far and we have her on anti-inflammatory medication for her arthritis.
The second case happened yesterday and involved two horses. Unfortunately, one was euthanized at the scene. The other came to the farm. She’s skinny, but seems to have no underlying health problems. We will start cleaning her up today and getting her on the road to recovery.
I cannot disclose any more details of these cases as they are both ongoing situations.
I can’t even thank Officer Christina Wilson enough for dropping everything to get these guys out of harms way. She really is the best of the best.
