70-year-old Jack Tuls is suspected of starving a large horse almost to death

--CORRECTION-- Rock County Man Arrested for Felony Animal Mistreatment


An earlier  version of this story on Jack Tuls' arrest on charges of felony mistreatment of a horse incorrectly reported that Tuls owned the Rock Prairie Dairy.  That information was supplied by the Rock County Sheriff's Office and was incorrect.   Todd Tuls, one of the dairy's owners, told WCLO and The Janesville Gazette that Jack Tuls has nothing do with the dairy and never has. 

Corrected story content follows: 

An elderly Rock County man is arrested on suspicoin of starving a horse to the point it had to be euthanized.

On April 19th the Rock County Sheriff’s Office responded to an animal mistreatment report on the 8800 block of East Rye Drive in the Town of Bradford.  According to a news release, there was a sighting of a full-grown Friesian stallion named, Davy, lying on its side within a barn.  He was said to be “skin and bones” and listless.

The horse's owner, 70-year-old Jack Tuls euthanized him upon a veterinarian’s recommendation, as Davy was too severely malnourished for medical intervention.  On April 30th deputies arrested Jack Tuls for felony Mistreatment of an Animal. Tuls is currently in the Rock County Jail pending his initial court appearance at 4:00 p.m. May 2nd.
The Rock County Sheriff's Office is monitoring six other horses that were on Tuls property. 

 Sheriff's Office, there's no indicaiton that the cows on that dairy have been mistreated.
