Cattle, horses, seized by sheriff’s office

Press release

On December 27, 2021, the Fluvanna County Sheriff’s Office seized 42 head of cattle and seven horses from a farm located in the Winnsville area of Fluvanna County.

David Haney, age 83 has charges pending for permitting animals to run at large.

During the past year, sheriff’s deputies have issued over 50 summonses to the livestock owner for allowing his livestock to run at large.

Allowing the livestock to run at large creates a health and safety issue for the public and for the animals, according to a  press release from the sheriff’s office.

In addition, there have been three motor vehicle crashes in the area involving cattle in the past month.

Major David Wells,  chief deputy with the sheriff’s office, said in an email that “an impoundment of this size is really the last option we want to use, however the owner failed to make any improvements and the matter only got worse.”

Wells added that the “state veterinarian was consulted prior to the impoundment. The animals were corralled and captured by professional cowboys, examined by a livestock veterinarian, and documented before they were transported.  They are currently at holding facility where we contract for their care and feeding. A court hearing will be held and the judge will determine the disposition of the animals.”
