    • Cruelty to Animals (12 Counts)

    Details:

    Both defendants, Dale Jahnke-Davis and Humberto DeJesus, deprived fourteen horses of proper and adequate nourishment. This act of feeding their horses so little caused them to suffer malnutrition over an extended period, such that they lost a high percentage of their normal body fat. One of the fourteen horses died as a result of this neglect. In addition, another suffered from a tail injury that went untreated by a licensed veterinarian. The horses were also not provided medical or dental treatment needed.
