168 animals, some domestic and some exotic, were seized from a veterinarian’s farm in Oklahoma following a seizure of 350 animals from the same farm less than a year ago.

The Norman Police Department said that the animals were not provided with adequate access to water, food, or appropriate shelter. Norman Animal Welfare took the animals from Aaron Stachmus’ farm which included emus, sugar gliders, draft horses, ostriches, tortoises, and dogs. They also discovered that both horses had one missing eye and needed immediate veterinary care.

Less than a year ago, the Norman Police seized more than 350 animals from Stachmus’ farm. In that case, he is facing charges of animal abuse and animal cruelty.

22 News reported that the Oklahoma Veterinary Board said Stachmus still has his license, and they’re waiting to see how his court case goes. For now, he is facing just ten years of probation.

This man should not be allowed to own and care for any animals, and he’s shown that he doesn’t care about the health or welfare of his animals. The animals are now in the care of various rescue groups and we hope that Stachmus will be prosecuted and all of his animals will be taken out of his care and put into sanctuaries.
