- Florida, USA -
Bill Gladson, Florida Fifth Judicial Circuit State Attorney, announced that on November 7, 2023, inside the courtroom of the Honorable Judge Peter Brigham, jurors found 62-years-old TERRENCE ANDRE CROWDER (pictured), guilty of one felony and two misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty.
The verdict was the result of “a thorough presentation of compelling evidence and expert subject matter testimony”, stated a press release by the State’s Attorney’s Office.
In July 2022, Marion County Animal Control Compliance Investigators responded to CROWDER’s property after receiving reports of animal negligence. The Marion County Sheriff’s Office was also called in for assistance.
From CROWDER’s property, officials removed thirteen (13) animals. Among them were a goat, a mare, and a miniature pony who were found in “appalling and negligent conditions”, stated the release.
The State’s Attorney’s Office identified the miniature pony as Shakira and the mare as Haling’s Darling.
According to the release, Shakira “had ‘elf shoe’ hooves from lack of care, which is extremely painful. All four hooves were also found to be infected with thrush.”
Haling’s Darling was extremely emaciated to the point that her ribs were showing.
As for the goat, he/she had an open, chronic wound on his/her back “that had been left untreated for quite some time – the wound was not only very tender to the touch but had calloused over.”
CROWDER, of Ocala, was subsequently arrested on August 20, 2022, and released on August 26, 2022, after posting bond.
State Attorney Gladson said in a statement: “𝘾𝙧𝙤𝙬𝙙𝙚𝙧 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙮 𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙨𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙞𝙢𝙖𝙡𝙨 𝙬𝙝𝙚𝙣 𝙝𝙚 𝙬𝙞𝙡𝙡𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙡𝙮 𝙙𝙚𝙥𝙧𝙞𝙫𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙢 𝙤𝙛 𝙗𝙖𝙨𝙞𝙘 𝙣𝙚𝙘𝙚𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙚𝙨 – 𝙛𝙧𝙤𝙢 𝙛𝙤𝙤𝙙 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙬𝙖𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙩𝙤 𝙖𝙙𝙚𝙦𝙪𝙖𝙩𝙚 𝙨𝙝𝙚𝙡𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙢𝙚𝙙𝙞𝙘𝙖𝙡 𝙘𝙖𝙧𝙚.

Online arrest records show that CROWDER is in custody awaiting sentencing.
His sentencing hearing will be scheduled at a later time.
It’s not good enough for me that this despicable individual was found guilty. I have never made it a secret that I believe that animal abusers should be hung from a tree and left hanging until the expiration of their useless and pathetic life!
I would love to see CROWDER’s cell covered in the same shit that those Voiceless Victims were living in. Furthermore, I would love to see him drinking the same filthy water from the same broken, rusty, bathtub shown in one of the pictures!
