MADERA, Calf. – A 20-year-old man was arrested for animal cruelty after an emaciated horse was found on a property on the 10000 block of Avenue 14 in Madera.
The discovery was made when a Game Warden noticed the horse on the property during a routine patrol on the afternoon of Sunday, June 9, 2019. The warden believed that the horse was deceased based on it’s lack of movement and extent of malnourishment. He reported the finding to the Madera County Sheriff’s office. A deputy arrived and with the warden they approached the horse, which was determined to be alive.
The horse was malnourished with labored breathing and it was too weak to lift its head. The horse’s condition was so poor that he had to be euthanized.
Axel Herrera-Martinez, the owner of the horse was arrested for felony animal cruelty.
