Golden residents Anne Goltz and Brian Schuck have been found guilty of animal cruelty under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act after SPCA Animal Protection Officers removed six horses from their rural property. They were each fined $500.
In March 2004, Senior Animal Protection Officer Kent Kokoska responded to a complaint from a local resident who described one of the horses on the property as a "walking skeleton". After viewing the horses, Constable Kokoska obtained a warrant and took six horses into SPCA custody. "Several of the horses were very thin, but one was grossly emaciated with its ribs, hips and spine protruding," says Kokoska. "None of the horses had access to water."
The horses received extensive treatment while in the care of the SPCA and were subsequently re-homed.
