Scott Co. Animal Control Forced To Rescue Horses Second Time From Same Home

Posted: Updated:

Animal Control Officers in Scott County are angered after they rescued some horses for a second time. After horses that they rescued and nursed back to health 14-years-ago were returned to the family they had been rescued from once before.

Scott County Animal Control officers say that two horses under the county's care are the luckier ones.

Officers seized them from a home on Double Culvert Road. Their owner, Jackie Lamn, now faces three charges of animal cruelty. A report states that the horses were extremely thing and malnourished.

"They weren't fed, what it comes down to, they weren't taken care of,” says Nathan Mullikin.

A third horse, a stallion had to be euthanized. A vet said that was the only humane thing to do.

"We couldn't get him to stand up he was so weak,” says Mullikin

Dunny, the euthanized horse, had been seized once before back in 2001 along with the other two horses when Lamb's son Jackson was found guilty on two counts of cruelty to animals.

In 2003, prosecutors asked the judge not to give the horses back to their owner, but she did anyway.

Prosecutors argued that putting them back in Jackson Lamb's hand would have been placing them in danger. A judge ordered them returned immediately.

"We had nursed them back to health and they looked great when they left here. When we and the vet picked them up last week. It was terrible...skin covering bones,” says Mullikin.

Jackie Lamb refused to make a comment to LEX 18.
