A phone call from a resident of Howe, Indiana, stating that cows and other animals were apparently dying of neglect at an area farm prompted PETA to contact local law enforcement. After dozens of calls and numerous letters, police investigated the complaint. As a result, the farmer was charged with and eventually pleaded guilty to failing to dispose of dead animals. Because of the man’s previous conviction of cruelty to animals and letters to the judge from PETA and our members, the 72-year-old man received the maximum sentence of two years in prison.
