Charges Filed in Carlton Animal Abuse Case
(McMinnville) - Animal abuse investigators say they have completed an investigation into the alleged neglect of 12 horses at 11415 NE Hendricks Rd., Carlton, Oregon. Lt. Paul May with the Yamhill County Sheriff`s office says his agency worked cooperatively on the case with the Oregon Humane Society.
May says ten horses were taken into protective custody ranging in age from 2 to 11 years, adding that two horses on the property already died of alleged neglect.
64-year old Robert Louis Greiner was cited to appear in Yamhill County Circuit Court on March 7th, 2006 at 1:45 PM to answer to charges of Animal Neglect in the First Degree and Animal Abuse in the First Degree. The charges stem from the previous death of two horses and what investigators consider the poor care of the surviving ten other horses.
Some of the horses are alleged to have shown signs of malnutrition to the point of near starvation. Deputies say they found that there was limited evidence of basic care being provided to these animals.
Members of the Yamhill County Sheriff`s Posse assisted in the removal of the surviving horses according to May. He says Greiner turned over the ten remaining horses to the Oregon Humane Society for protective custody pending future possible adoption.
`This is the second major animal abuse and neglect case that we have had in the past year and we take these incidents very seriously. If you have animals and cannot provide the means to properly care for them, please contact our Office or the Oregon Humane Society for help" said Sheriff Jack Crabtree.
