Pamela Belo, a veteran Deputy with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, was charged with felony and misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty after she surrendered four miniature horses on July 3, 2012. Two of the horses had been deprived of food and nourishment for the past year. One horse was described as "a skeleton with a head."
As she was a law enforcement officer, sworn to protect and serve, this neglect is shocking. We demand that she be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
