Two Tecumseh men face animal abuse charges after a Windsor Essex County Humane Society investigation at a farm on Manning Rd.
Two ducks, two sheep and ten pigs were found dead on the property, while several other pigs, sheep, horses and rabbits were seized due to an on-going lack of food.
Executive director at the humane society, Melanie Coulter says they’re rehabilitating as many of the animals as they can. “It’s a matter of dealing with their medical condition, bringing them back to a point where they’re healthy, and then being able to find homes for them,” explains Coulter. “Unfortunately in this situation, a number of the animals were found dead on the farm, but the ones that were removed, we have currently the three horses, as well as three pigs that were removed.”
John Holland and Eddie Blake will appear in court next week, facing eleven charges, each carrying a maximum sentence of two-years in jail or a $60,000 fine.
