A guy leaves 2oo goats to die in the middle of winter and is now brokering a plea bargain to avoid jail time?
Get this, as part of the deal he won’t be able to own goats for six years. How about NEVER!! Why would this person ever be allowed to own any animal again?
Many of the goats were piled on top of each other in a heap.
“Neighbors who discovered the goats described finding “piles of death.” The goats, which apparently climbed on each other for warmth, were waist high in some places of the barn.”
Can you imagine the outcry if wolves were suspected of this? We’d never hear the end of it.
The sad thing is this is not an isolated incident. Animal abuse is rampant. Just read the news and you’ll find heartbreaking stories on a regular basis.
And yet wolves are demonized and persecuted relentlessly. Entire agencies are dedicated to monitoring them like they’re common criminals. Hundreds of wolves are brutally killed every year by our own government for agribusiness, yet a person can negligently allow 200 goats to die and they get a slap on the wrist?
Hypocrisy, the lie, is the true sister of evil, intolerance and cruelty……
Malta man reaches plea agreement in deaths of 200 goats in Dodson area
BY KIM SKORNOGOSKI • TRIBUNE STAFF WRITER • JANUARY 26, 2011
Malta man accused of leaving more than 200 goats to die last February in Dodson reached a plea agreement that allows him to avoid jail time, but forbids him from owning goats for the next six years.
Jon Carman was charged with one count of aggravated animal cruelty, which carries a maximum sentence of two years in jail and a $2,500 fine. His three-day trial was scheduled to start today.
Phillips County Clerk of District Court Iris Robinson said the trial was vacated Tuesday because Carman and the county attorney reached a plea agreement.
Under the terms of the plea agreement, Carman will plead no contest to felony animal cruelty and Phillips County Attorney Ed Amestoy will recommend a six-year deferred sentence, according to KRTV.
