East Bay animal control takes weeks to rescue neglected horses

Apr 19, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: KTVU Oakland

What appears to be a horrible case of animal abuse in El Sobrante came to light several weeks ago, but it wasn't until Wednesday that animal control authorities took steps to rescue several horses that had been neglected to near starvation.

This is in reference to the animal abuse story on the horses in El Sobrante. The lack of commitment from the office of animal control in this case is astounding. I am appalled at their extremely slow response time to this, and only after the media was involved to bring it out in the open. I do hope that there will be an investigation of sorts into this from the city or county addressing this neglect of their responsibility, and be held accountable, especially the person at animal control that hung up the phone. What do they think they are there for anyway???

They are mostly Dog Catchers and not very good at that; never have been. They always have nice trucks though.

Maybe it takes a lot of time and effort for government to take someone's property. I personally think that is a good thing.
