News From the Border

Providing the news from a different front but from a war that we must win as well! I recognize the poverty and desperate conditions that many Latinos live in. We, as the USA, have a responsibility to do as much as we can to reach out to aid and assist spiritually with the Gospel and naturally with training, technology and resources. But poverty gives no one the right to break the laws of another sovereign nation.

Ten neglected horses were in the care of a rescue program Thursday after being seized from the former home of an illegal immigrant who had been deported, according to the Yuma County Sheriff's Office.

YCSO personnel arrived on the scene in the 6700 block of Hope Avenue Wednesday night in response to a neglected animal case, according to YCSO spokesman Capt. Eben Bratcher.

Deputies found 11 horses on the property, located off 8th Street near Somerton Avenue. One was in what Bratcher described as "extremely poor condition" and a veterinarian was called.

"The vet decided the horse needed to be euthanized immediately," Bratcher said.

The other 10 animals were turned over to the Triple R Ranch, a local horse rescue program.
