The State Supreme Court has heard oral arguments in the case of William Zobel of Greene County, who is charged with animal abuse and neglect regarding more than one-hundred horses on his property. 127 horses were impounded, taken away, and disposed of – through the euthanizing of some and the sale of others. Zobel’s attorney, Dale Ingram, argues the law is unconstituionally vague because it doesn’t address the concern of private property rights. Dan Patterson, the Chief Assistant Prosecutor for Greene County, says there is nothing vague about the law, adding it does not infringe on private property rights. Zobel faces about three dozen criminal counts in connection with charges of animal abuse and neglect. The trial is set to get underway in September.
