(HOUSTON, TX)– A Galveston County man is charged with cruelty to livestock. Habitat for Horses took in his five horses, but two of them died. The remaining three are so severely malnourished that recovery will take months.
David Altamirano surrendered to Texas City Police — and in a hearing, custody of the horses was awarded to habitat for horses. Altamirano was ordered by the judge to pay over 73-hundred dollars for care and feeding of the horses.
