Sugarcreek Auction & Leroy Baker

Animals' Angels

2007_12_01_usa_dyinghorse_sugarcreek_smDear Friends of Animals’ Angels:
The last week has been very eventful. Ever since we released our latest report about the horrors of Sugarcreek Auction, town officials and the Ohio Department of Agriculture have been overwhelmed with thousands of emails, phone calls and letters. Thank you so much for your incredible response to our call for action! It was a strong sign to authorities in charge that the American public is watching and not willing to tolerate the ongoing cruelty at the weekly auction.
As a result, Animals’ Angels was able to initiate a meeting with all authorities involved to discuss the further course of action and ways to improve the conditions, handling and care for the horses at Sugarcreek Auction.  Animals’ Angels Executive Director Sonja Meadows will attend the meeting, which is scheduled for April 4th. “The meeting is definitely a step in the right direction. However, local law enforcement has to accept the fact that they are in charge of protecting these animals and that there are no more excuses”, Meadows said. We have already provided officials with a list of our suggestions and will provide more information during the meeting.
We will inform you about the outcome of this meeting right away. Thank you again for your support – as always, we can’t do it without you.    Read MORE and see the FOIA documents
