Sheriff’s Office Removes Dual Peppy & Others From Brunzells’ Care

Three days after the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office in Colorado was notified of horses living among the remains of as many as 12 dead horse carcasses on Sept. 19, the animals (including Dual Peppy) have been removed from their Black Forest, Colo., farm. The Sherriff’s office, which received criticism from the community about the length of time it took to remove the living horses, explained that it was essential to follow legal protocol to obtain a conviction.

With the help of the Pikes Peak Region Humane Society, 10 horses and four llamas were removed from the premises, and owner Sherri Brunzell has been charged with animal cruelty.
