WASHINGTON, DC – In letters to Congressman Ed Whitfield (R-KY) and Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) the 3,000 member National Sheriff’s Association endorsed the PAST ACT today. The Virginia based Executive Director called on Law Enforcement, especially in rural areas, to become more invested in enforcing animal cruelty laws.
Bedford County, Tennessee Sheriff Randall Boyce is at the epicenter for Horse Abuse in the United States. His telephone number is (931) 684-4566.
At last year’s Celebration, Boyce’s office had a presence at the Celebration where the cruelty to animals was being checked for by S.H.O.W. HIO inspectors and the Veterinary Medical Officers with the USDA. These cruisers are located at the path going into the Inspection Area. Despite numerous instances of Horses being found sore and abused in violation of the Horse Protection Act, Sheriff Boyce did nothing to enforce the Tennessee Animal Cruelty statutes.
No cases were brought.
Please call him and ask him. His telephone number is (931) 684-4566.
