CARE. AND AUTHORITIES ARE NOW CHARGING A MAN FOR THE DEATH. WANE 15’S KAITOR KAY IS DIGGING INTO THE SHERIFF’S ANIMAL NEGLECT INVESTIGATION. AUTHORITIES SEIZED THE HORSE MICA FROM THIS LAGRANGE COUNTY FARM ON STATE ROAD 9 LAST MONTH. THE CONCERN WAS THE INJURIES TO THE HORSE’S LEGS AND CHEST. LARRY MEYER’S SENIOR BOUGHT MICA FROM A HORSE AUCTION IN SHIPSHEWANA. HE SAYS IF HE DIDN’T BUY HER, THE AUCTION WOULD HAVE KILLED HER. AN UNDISCLOSED PERSON COMPLAINED TO THE LAGRANGE COUNTY SHERIFF JEFF CAMPOS ABOUT THE HORSE’S INJURED CONDITION ON MEYER’S FARM. CAMPOS THEN SIEZED THE HORSE FROM MEYER’S PROPERTY AND TURNED IT OVER TO NON-PROFIT INDIANA HORSE RESCUE. THOUGH THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS WERE INVESTED IN MICA’S CARE, SHE DIED ON SUNDAY. CAMPOS IS PRESSING CHARGES AGAINST MEYERS, WHICH MEYERS CALLS COMPLETELY UNFAIR. HE DIDN’T WANT TO SHOW HIS FACE ON CAMERA, BUT PLEADS HIS CASE THAT HE WAS ONLY TRYING TO SAVE THE HORSE’S LIFE. “I DID NOTHING WRONG. I BROUGHT IT HERE TRYING TO REHABILITATE IT. IF THEY WANT TO SAY DIFFERENT. I’VE BROUGHT A LOT WORSE ONES THAN THAT BACK TO HEALTH. “THEY’RE JUST WRONG. THEY WERE GOING TO SHOOT THE HORSE IF THEY DID NOT TAKE IT THAT DAY.” /// “HE WAS NOT GETTING HER VETINARY CARE. HE WAS DOING HIS OWN REMEDIES. I WAS THERE WITH A REPRESENTATIVE FROM INDIANA BOARD OF ANIMAL HEALTH, A VETANARIAN AND ON THE VET’S RECOMENDATION THAT HORSE NEEDED IMMEDIATE VET CARE. SO THAT’S WHY I DID WHAT I DID.”” MYERS IS BEING CHARGED WITH ANIMAL NEGLECT BY THE LAGRANGE COUNTY SHERIFF. WE’RE TOLD THE INVESTIGATION IS FAR FROM OVER.
