Thursday, October 24, 2019

More animals have been removed from a Howe area farm.

According to WNDU, the LaGrange County Sheriff's Office and the Indiana State
Board of Animal Health served search warrants Wednesday at the Myers Farm on
State Road 9. Officials say they found dead animals improperly disposed of and more animals not being taken care of properly.

The Board of Health recommended that three horses, two calves and a goat be seized from the property for various reasons, including inadequate care, neglect or lack of proof of immunization.

Eleven dogs were also seized due to the lack of a proper shelter, proof of immunization and physical well being.

Officers cited Larry Myers Sr., for having too many animals without a kennel license and having a false and fictitious plate on his vehicle. Police say no arrests were made at the time the animals were removed. However, more charges may be brought pending results of their investigation.

The farm has been investigated in the past for operating with animals that have
appeared to be improperly cared for. A horse was removed from the farm in
September after photos appeared on social media of the animal with swollen and
bloody legs.
