Man in 2016 dead horses case arrested again for animal cruelty

- A man charged with animal cruelty in 2016 after authorities found four dead horses on his property was arrested again Saturday night for animal cruelty, according to Karen Hirsch from LifeLine Animal Project and investigators on the scene.

Brandon Fulton allegedly had animals on his property tied up with no food or water, and he threatened one of the animal control officers, according to Hirsch and authorities.

Officials say they were notified on Saturday that Fulton had new animals on his property. The animals were taken to a rescue center.

Fulton was charged in July 2016 for aggravated animal cruelty after four dead and three malnourished horses were found on his property by Fulton County Animal Services.

In February 2017, Fulton also received four more animal cruelty charges after an officer responded to an anonymous call saying Fulton was beating his new horses, according to Hirsch.

The responding officer wrote him up for not providing his horses with water in February.
