Horses Get Help from AG
Attorney General King is pleased with the response by law enforcement and prosecutors to the plight of some of the horses at the Southwest Livestock Auction pens in Valencia County. The local district attorney has charged the auction’s owner with animal cruelty and other offenses. As promised, AG King provided legal help from his office to get to this point. Now, AG King is providing the primary funding to help pay for the prosecution of charges brought by the district attorney. The Attorney General says he recognized that the DA had limited resources so he found money in his office’s budget to help bolster those resources. AG King will continue to help in this particular matter and is committed to helping ensure the health and welfare of horses across New Mexico.
