Decent does not come near what this man has been doing. Why can't animal control remove the horses...he's in jail, nobody to take care of them. They should be able to go in when conditions like this exist.

This man is by definition a douche and needs a long time in a very unpleasant jail, a life time of paying a huge fine and working all of his FREE time cleaning up poop in animal shelters.

There needs to be a one and done law in this country for people like this creep. I have no doubt he killed that foal. May he rot in a pit of slime.

The cruel SOB should be hung from the same tree. Sounds like that state needs some laws to remove and protect animals from cruel and inhumane people.

There are no words to describe how discussing this person is. People like this have no reason to take up space on this earth. I hope a vigilante takes care of him soon.

Would love to hang this sadistic SOB. He should never be allowed near animals again--ever. He should also be in jail.

Noted and did watch video which made me cry,,this was a beautiful foal. He is only getting a $10,000.00??
He definitely is physco, and he needs to be in jail for a long time, having had another charge for the death of a horse in 2012. I see no reason why Animal Cruelty cannot go on his property and take the other three horses as they probably are not in good shape, and will starve if someone isn't lookin after them.
Thanks Cher.

hope he got a hernia from lifting the horse! What a miserable POS. Kinda weird that his name is "decent"-eh? He hasn't got a clue what a decent human being is!!!

He should be hanged also so we could keep his hide to ensure he never does this again!

This was not the first time?? It's maddening that 'people' like this exist. What fu(ks up somebody's mind so badly to the point of serious infliction upon an animal?

Mr. Decent is not decent. He needs some frontier justice. If he ends up in jail, give him enough rope to hang himself. Better yet tie him to the tree in which he abused his horse and let the buzzards get him. Better yet give him a one way ticket to the middle of the Sahara Desert - there aren't any trees there. Better yet drop him off in the middle of a herd of Great White sharks in the Great Barrier Reef with no life preserver. Message to the judge: Make sure this jackass never harms another animal.

cleaning animal poop would be to good a job for this lying animal torturer! let him clean out by hand commercial out houses! fine his ugly sorry ass, and jail him with 1 piece of dried bread and a glass of dirty water a day! tear down his house and take away his property and make it into a park for animal grave yard.

First sentence says alot.

"A man charged with animal cruelty in 2012 is once again behind bars in Clarksville after a dead horse was found hanging from a tree on his property. "

He has already done something and is still owning horses?

Depressingly disgusting also couldn't view the clip. Why does this man have any animals on his property. Laws should be changed. Once you have abused you should never be allowed to have an animal ever again!

Diane L (110)

I didn't see a video, and almost glad I didn't. As a long time horse owner, I find this too disgusting to even consider this guy's lousy excuses! I guess the animal cruelty/abuse laws in states such as Tennessee are far more lax than they are in my state. He should not be allowed to have horses, period. If the foal died of natural causes, and that does happen, he should have called a vet to do a necropsy and document that it was not from his neglect.

He should be hung not jailed-that is too good for him.
