Investigation Category: 

Investigators noted all the doors of both barns on the premises were completely closed, leaving the horses inside the dark barn with poor ventilation. Investigators could hear the horses carrying on inside the barn.  The property has no pastures. Bruce Rotz purchases horses at auctions across PA every week and holds them inside the barn until they are ready to be shipped to the Canadian slaughter plant, never providing them with access to the outdoors.
