EUGENE, Ore -- After court documents revealed 50-year-old Creswell resident Gwenyth Davies allegedly violated her probation, community members are speaking out against her.

"She should have all of her animals taken away and maybe she should do some time," Mike Curtis said.

A total of 61 horses were removed from Davies' property during the initial investigation in 2019 after a veterinarian found that the horses were not receiving the minimum care standards under Oregon law.

"A lot of times people have a huge heart and they think that they're doing something good. But they don't have the idea of what they're truly doing," Pat Mills said.

Davies pleaded guilty to 11 counts of second-degree animal neglect in early 2020.

"She's been warned. She got her warning. She needs to go to prison," Rachel Smith said.

Davies will appear back in court over claims that she did not provide monthly pictures of the four horses that she's allowed to have currently.

The hearing is scheduled for April 26th at 8:30 a.m.
