Waynesburg Auction, PA 7/26/07

Investigation Category: 

The Animals’ Angels inspectors visit the Waynesburg auction. Many of the horses brought to this market show signs of neglect like overgrown hooves, starvation or respiratory diseases. They are sold cheap here, a fact that attracts the “killer buyers” to this small market. The handling is rough; several of the horses are unbroken and not used to human contact. The workers appear afraid of these animals and are unable to deal with them properly.

Animals’ Angels will work on improving the handling at this auction.
