The officers had stopped at the farm to investigate reports of a dead animal. It was supposed to be a routine check, but something was off about the place. Then, as they opened the barn door, a horrific sight met them, and they rushed to take action before more lives were lost.

Back in 1988 an animal rescue group called the Large Animal Protection Society (LAPS) was founded with the intention of policing animal cruelty laws. And it continues to do so to this day, with the help of its dedicated volunteer staff.

Indeed, as its name suggests, LAPS specializes in protecting bigger animals that smaller protection agencies cannot. Many of the animals it helps safeguard, for instance, are domestic farmyard animals like horses, pigs and cows. It’s no surprise, then, that it assisted police at the scene of a small hobby farm.
