Animals’ Angels visited Roping J collecting facility in Fairhaven, MI. It was observed that the outdoor pen area was full of horses and there was a lot of activity upon arrival. The Roping J truck was backed up to the loading ramp awaiting loading.

Shortly thereafter, the truck left and the driver started heading towards Port Huron. At a gas station, investigators were able to observe and document the horses inside the single deck trailer. It was noted that there little sawdust for the horses to stand on and the animals were extremely crowded in the vehicle. After the truck finished fuelling, the driver continued on until he crossed into Canada at 2:37pm.
