Investigators continued to monitor the horse auction in Sugarcreek, Ohio. The aggressive handling of the horses behind the auction ring and the crowded pens caused the horses to be extremely agitated, they were kicking in biting each other. After the sale was over, the investigators noticed a white mare with severe face and eye injuries inside Baker’s pen. The injuries appeared to be fresh. Neither the auction management nor the auction veterinarian portrayed any concern for the suffering animal or took any action. Animals’ Angels reported these observations to the local authorities to ensure that the mare would receive treatment
