Greenville man charged with starving, shooting his horses


GREENVILLE – A Greenville man was arrested on felony charges of aggravated cruelty to animals and failure to provide proper veterinary care and sustenance to three horses under his care.

Peter DePaulo, 62, of Decker Road was charged following an investigation by the Hudson Valley SPCA Humane Law Enforcement Division in cooperation with the State Police at the Greenville Barracks.

He allegedly left the horses on his property without food and water resulting in them becoming emaciated. Rather than feeding the horses and obtaining veterinary care, DePaulo is alleged to have repeatedly shot the horses in a cruel and inhumane fashion causing a painful protracted death.

He also failed to bury the animal carcasses within 72 hours, authorities said.

DePaulo was processed and ordered to return to Greenville Town Court next month.
