Source: Disputed Jason Maduna, documented killer of wild horses, back behind bars for violating parole due to possessing horses “Stupid is as stupid does; if you take one cup of Jason Meduna, mix in equal parts of his wild horse trading buddy Ray Field with just a dash of […]
“In early November of 2011 a three person Parole Board, in rural Nebraska, met with convicted Wild Horse Killer, Jason Meduna, and discussed setting him free; very, very early. If you are not familiar with this convicted animal abuser and his heinous crimes please click (HERE) as the record is long and to retell the gory details is beyond me at this point. But his former neighbor, the one who was forced to bear his abuse and accused of poisoning his horses as he let them die of starvation and no water, took the time to order the CD of his hearing and transcribe it for your review. We offer no commentary, at this point, but simply the recorded conversation that went back and forth between four individuals who, obviously, have no love for the gift of life and the beauty of equines but instead only see the narrow-minded path that best serves their individual needs. May God have mercy on their souls.” ~ R.T.
As part of my less formal education I attended a course from HSUS called “First Strike – The Violence Connection.” While the material presented was shocking, the conclusion fits like a glove onto every scenario of animal abuse and neglect that I’ve witnessed. The bottom line is that when you see a person who is guilty of animal abuse, you are also looking at a person who has no problem beating the hell out of another human. Animal abuse is a proven predictor of violent behavior.
Last Wednesday, Jason Meduna, convicted of 145 counts of felony animal cruelty carrying a sentence of 5-10 years in January of 2010 was covertly granted parole by the state of Nebraska while they negotiated with Wyoming to allow the felon to reside in their state upon his release. The official parole board statement referred to Meduna’s parole as “pending” while they attempted to rid themselves of the controversial wild horse and burro murderer at their very first opportunity and to add injury to insult, they are going to attempt to dump their trash just across their state line so that the smell does not carry back to their precious board room. Sorry boys and girls, he ain’t gonna be all that far away.
A Morrill County rancher convicted of letting more than 200 wild horses and burros starve was not paroled today, but his parole is “pending” according to a spokesman with the parole board. 44-year-old Jason Meduna was sentenced to serve 40 months to 10 years in prison in February of 2010 after being convicted the month before for 145 counts of cruel neglect of an animal resulting in injury, illness or death.
A Morrill County, Nebraska rancher convicted of letting more than 200 wild horses and burros starve is scheduled for a parole hearing Wednesday at the Lincoln Community Corrections Center. 44-year-old Jason Meduna was convicted in January of last year of 145 counts of cruel neglect of an animal resulting in injury, illness or death.
Meduna was ordered to serve 40 months to 10 years in prison by District Court Judge Leo Dobrovolny, who also stated that Meduna could not reside with any animals for 30 years.
The starving horses were discovered on Meduna’s Three-Strikes Ranch south of Alliance in April, 2009. Law enforcement removed the ailing animals from the ranch and transported them to the Morrill County Fairgrounds in Bridgeport. Over 30 animals were found dead at the ranch.
Today we share with you the anniversary perspective from the woman who suffered long before any of us were aware of Meduna and who continues to suffer, today, from witnessing the evil that walked on two legs and killed wild horses as a hobby and pastime. Her name is Vicki Freiberger and this is her story, in her words and through her eyes.
