Suspect accused of animal cruelty

An Oklahoma cattle owner faces animal cruelty charges, after dozens of his cows were found starving to death.

Muskogee County authorities say nine of the animals were buried on the man's pastureland Wednesday. The field near Porum is where 26 other cows, and one bull were found hungry and weak. A Muskogee man, EJ Mayes, has been called on to temporarily care for the cattle. "Their ribs, their hips, they are just poor, there's no fat on them. I don' t think any animal anything should be starved to death like that."

The Muskogee County District Attorney filed abuse charges against 43-year-old James Coate of Haskell County. The DA will also decide whether the cows will be sold, or returned to the owner.
