Colorado State Law:  A person commits cruelty to animals if he knowingly or with criminal negligence overdrives, overloads, tortures, torments, deprives of necessary sustenance, unnecessarily or cruelly beats, needlessly mutilates, needlessly kills, carries in or upon any vehicles in a cruel or reckless manner, or otherwise mistreats or neglects any animal, or causes or procures it to be done, or having the charge and custody of any animal, fails to provide it with proper food, drink, protection from the weather, or abandons it. (CRS 1973, 18-9-202)


To Report Animal Cruelty:  Many times it takes several calls to Animal Control or the Sheriff's Dept. to get a response.  Remember, "the squeaky wheel gets the grease" - call back if the authorities have not checked on the horse or horses that you are concerned about.  Remember to be polite, ask for a case number when appropriate and ask to receive a call back after the welfare check is completed. 


Also report the incident to the Bureau of Animal Protection.

Their website has a page designated for such reports.


Crime Stoppers Animal Abuse Program:  For anonymous reporting of abuse, call 720-913-STOP (7867).
