SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - A Suffolk couple says a Portsmouth police officer starved a former police horse to death.
Suffolk animal control has turned the case over to the Commonwealth's Attorney, who will decide whether to press charges. Portsmouth police are conducting an internal investigation into the matter.
The horse named 'Amy' was a 14-year veteran of Portsmouth Police's mounted patrol. During that time, she was happy, healthy and housed at the police stable.
Amy retired in 2009. She was adopted by a Portsmouth police officer and moved to his home in Suffolk. Four years later she changed hands again, when the officer gave her to police stable manager Debra Kelly.
When Debra Kelly and her husband David saw Amy, they were floored.
"What we found was a horse that was starved to death," said David Kelly. "You could see her heart beating in her chest. She was just...gone."
