Sheriff’s Deputy Charged With Starving Miniature Horses

A 23-year veteran of the Hillsborough County, Fla., Sheriff’s office has been arrested on two counts of animal cruelty after volunteers from RVR Horse Rescue discovered four emaciated miniature horses on her property in early July. Agricultural officers who responded to Pamela Belo’s property determined that the horses were starving and dehydrated, and that the alleged neglect had been going on for as long as a year.
