Recently I have had a complaint concerning animals that are in the county, Only to be told these animals have no rights because their owners residence is in the county (not city limits)! These animals lay there dead for days, when they are picked up they are tossed into a field! The health department did do an inspection and found one with two broken legs, one dead, referred it back to animal control. I spoke with the head supervisor at animal control, who told me it is not illegal to throw animal carcasses into a field in the county, and as long as the animal with the two broken legs had two legs that worked to scoot itself along it does not fall under cruelty! But either way it is county and not city so there was nothing he could do. These animals are in abut a 1/4 acre pen, their is on estimate 200 of them. Their pen is not clean, I have never seen it cleaned. The fence is pieced together from where they break out. There is not enough shelter for all of these animals, which I am told in the state of Texas livestock does not need shelter, that means they have to endure temps above 100 degrees, rain, hail, cold, in the winter. There has to be something done to change this law. There is a county council meeting on July 9th at 10am so please help by signing this petition to take to that meeting! Thank you
