Cases of animal cruelty have been growing. Daily you can hear news regarding animal cruelty that can be heart-wrenching. Often humans forget that they are not the only living beings on the planets; even animals have life and feel the pain.
Recently, a Colorado couple was charged with animal cruelty charges after brutal footage went viral. In the video, a horse was being dragged behind the pick-up truck.
John Saldate and wife Amber Rose Saldate were charged with animal cruelty on Monday. The charges are filed under class one misdemeanor under Colorado law. The incident has shocked everyone as the heart-wrenching incident of a horse being dragged, so brutally is certainly unimaginable.
The horse was dragged for at least 100 yards in the snow. The woman who was narrating the video said that the horse was not leaving the ranch, so John had to drag him.
It is as disturbing as it can get. Viewers who have seen the video have been shaming the couple for their misdeed. It is being compared to sin. Harming animals is considered a sin.
The video was posted by an animal lover who later claimed that she as not present at the scene and have no connection with the owners. So far, the video has been viewed 40,000 times, and outraged viewers are commenting about the couple’s cruelty.
The horse was taken over the law enforcement and sent to an animal shelter for his further stay as the law believes that the horse will not be safe with its owners.
The woman who was charged along with her husband said that sometimes you tend to make a bad decision that can turn your life upside down, and that’s what has happened in their case.
She apologized that she should not have done that and not let her husband do such cruelty with their horse.
