A petition has been launched seeking justice for an emaciated miniature stallion in Florida who died within days of being taken into care.
The petition, started by the Seraphim12 Foundation, is already nearing its target of 5000 signatures over the care of Warrior.
Pamela Belo, 48, a 23-year veteran deputy with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, has been charged with felony animal cruelty and misdemeanor animal cruelty.
She resigned following her arrest.
The petition, which will be given to the Hillsborough County Prosecutor’s Office, demands that Belo be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
“As she was a law enforcement officer, sworn to protect and serve, this neglect is shocking,” the petition states.
The petition can be accessed here.
