Florida: John Grimes and Monroe Moore Jr. Sentenced In Horse Starvation Animal Cruelty Case

FLORIDA -- Two Century men have been sentenced in connection with a 2015 animal cruelty case.




Despite being charged with felony animal cruelty, John Jackson Grimes was given 12 months probation and told to do 50 hours of community service.

His partner in crime, Monroe Kemp Moore, Jr., got the same sentence.

 

No jail time, not even one single day, given to these scumbags who knowingly starved these horses until they were walking skeletons.

Escambia County Animal Control, Panhandle Equine Rescue and the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office seized three severely malnourished horses from a property in the 2500 block of Highway 168, near Shaw Road, near Century on May 27, 2015.




According to court documents in the case, two of the horses had bones that were  projecting and visible due to malnourishment. The horses were unable to graze due to a lack of grass in their quarter of an acre enclosure. It appeared that the horses had no water and no one caring for them for some time.


The horses were rehabilitated by Panhandle Equine Rescue.

The only horse rescue in Escambia County, PER was founded by a small group of concerned citizens with a mission to rescue, rehabilitate and provide adoption services for abused, neglected and abandoned equines. PER is authorized by the court system to investigate equine cruelty in Escambia County.
