Outrageous Injustice: Merciful Act met with Felony Charge, While Animal Cruelty goes Unpunished

On November 22, 2002, Farm Sanctuary’s shelter manager, Susie Coston, responded to a cruelty call and visited a sheep farm a few miles from Farm Sanctuary. She found a lamb whose back was broken and whose back legs were paralyzed being trampled by adult sheep in a crowded barn. Nobody was present to help, and Susie removed the injured animal from the dangerous situation. She brought him to Cornell University Animal Hospital where the decision was made to euthanize him. Incredibly, local authorities have charged Susie Coston with felony burglary for her merciful act, while Rory Miller, the individual who neglected this lamb to suffer, has yet to be charged with cruelty to animals. Please write to the Schuyler County District Attorney, and recommend that compassion be rewarded and cruelty be punished. Ask him to drop all charges against Susie Coston, and urge him to prosecute Rory Miller for cruelty to animals. Mr. Joseph Fazzary
