Excerpted from the Fort Scott Tribune:

Local man arrested for animal cruelty

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

By Michael Pommier

According to a report by Nadia Ramdass of KENS 5, a television station in San Antonio, Texas, a local man was arrested after abandoning a trailer holding seven horses in San Antonio.

According to the San Antonio Police Department, Justin Harvey, 41, of Fort Scott was arrested Sept. 2 and charged with cruelty to livestock. He later posted $5,000 bond.

The report said Harvey’s tractor trailer broke down along Interstate 35 sometime on Sept. 1. The next morning a passerby noticed the horses inside the trailer at a truck stop and called Animal Care Services and 911.

A veterinarian who was on the scene said the horses most likely had not had anything to eat or drink for at least eight hours. Even though the trailer was vented, the authorities said the temperatures inside the trailer were between 130 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit, the report said.

As a result, two of the seven horses in the trailer had died and the others were determined to be in serious distress and severely malnourished.

The horses being transported came from Tucker Brothers, LLC, a local horse-trading operation run by Raymond Tucker. Tucker told The Tribune that he had sold the horses to a man in South Fort Worth, Texas and that the horses were being returned because they were considered to be undesirable.

“It was just an unfortunate incident and poor judgment on [Harvey’s] part,” Tucker said. He later added, “The horses had been mine and I sold them to a guy that I’ve been selling horses to … they take them onto the border…..
