Horses Roaming Near Major Roadway
DREXEL -- The Humane Society checked out Tyson Powell's seven horses after neighbors called Thursday morning to again complain about them roaming on South Union Road.
"They're hungry, that's why they keep coming out," said neighbor Marilyn Morland.
"They're going through our yard, going through our field, going through our orchard," said neighbor Frank Perone.
"I have responded to a number of calls out here ranging from condition to them out in the roadway," said Humane Society Agent Sheila Marquis.
"I'm not moving. It's stupid that I should have to move for somebody else's failure to control their stock. My fear is that because we are surrounded by two 50 mph roads and I know the stock are out there regularly at some point somebody is going to run into a horse and possibly fatal consequences for both the horse and whoever is in the car, and nothing changes," said Perone.
The field where these horses stay is pretty desolate, there's not a lot of grass there. Powell says they break through the fences to graze for grass. He says he has to come by once a day and take these horses to a nearby field where they can graze for grass.
"We don't have any grass in there for one, they want grass. You can put whatever you want in there, they want grass," said Powell.
Powell and his family have owned this farm for more than 50 years and through the years, he admits he's gotten a few tickets for failure to control animals, but says the problem was fixed when they put up a fence. The only problem is Thursday morning he says somebody came by and cut the wires. "My fence was torn down in my wires were down and cut."
Humane Society agents say as long as your animal is securely fenced, safe, and has the necessary food, water and shelter you are obeying the law.
Despite a few minor health issues, Powell passed Thursday's check, but agents did recommend growing grass where they roam, so they have no need to leave.
"Especially in the spring and summer, this is not the only call we get," said Marquis. "Horses get out and look for food. A lot of the grass is just starting to come up where they can graze on it and they're forging for extra food, and they're clever and they get out."
Humane Society agents say they always try to work with and educate animal owners first and when that doesn't work they can issue warnings and citations.
If you or a neighbor around you is having problems taking care of their animals, or just want to get better information on what your animal needs, don't hesitate to call the Humane Society.
