It’s disappointing that some people are still cruel to animals and denying them any form of dignity and respect despite seeing the injuries their actions are causing to the animals. This cowboy views this poor horse as an object and even talking about him like someone would about a car. Despite the sores and wounds the horse has, the cowboy refused to prove him any medical treatments! outrageous!

Horrific abuse and fraud! Please share to expose this man and his crimes! Man who tried to ride into Staten Island, New York on horseback denies #animal abuse: ‘If you keep pushing them, they’ll push through it’ –
The unrepentant cowboy who trotted his exhausted sore-ridden #horses across a Staten Island bridge insisted that he didn’t do anything wrong. “Animals were given to man by God for their use, but people have turned it into where they care more about animals than people,” Tod (Doc) #Mishler, 80, told investigators. “Horses are strong, when you baby them, they want to be lazy. If you keep pushing them, they’ll push through it.” Mishler rode across the Outerbridge Crossing on Monday in a white cowboy hat, red kerchief and vest. Traffic stopped on the bridge and police detained him and took away his horses. On Tuesday, cops saw the horses tied to a tree near the West Shore Motel in Charleston, without water in almost 80-degree weather, court records show. Veterinarians brought in by cops and the Staten Island Di Hope II, who according to Mishler has been with him for a few years with “16,000 miles on her,” had bloody open sores, where she was rubbed raw from her harness, on both her neck and head, the records show. Vets also found lameness in her right leg due to an untreated infected injury, the records show.strict Attorney’s office examined the horses on Wednesday.
