Animal Neglect Charges Dropped

Written by on March 20, 2018

Prosecutors in Cody have dropped animal neglect charges against two brothers after Park County officials learned the full extent of the efforts the men made to recover the horses that they said were spooked out of their hunting camp by a grizzly bear.
David and Bradley Flint, who live near Cheyenne, were charged with abandoning three horses in the Shoshone National Forest in the fall of 2016. A hunter found two of the horses in April 2017. The third was found dead.
U.S. Forest Service law enforcement officer Ron Ostrom had alleged that the Flints’ search efforts were insufficient. But Prosecutor Bryan Skoric told the Cody Enterprise Friday that as the investigation continued, it became clear the men had made several attempts to recover their horses during the difficult winter.
In addition to the charges being dropped, the brothers have also had their horses returned to them.
