jt hearing 010518
01-05-18 Finding THL
Jan 6th, 2018 – Jacob Thompson Hearing outcome:
Jan 6th 2018 –  Jacob Thompson was found guilty on all 5 charges which were: 
1) Selling of Livestock without a Permit   (he just recently obtained his livestock permit, however for the time prior to that, he was operating without a permit)
 
2) Engaging in commercial sale of Livestock without a Surety Bond.   Bond has recently been obtained, however for the time prior to that he was operating without)
 
3) Transportation of animals across state lines without proper Health Certificates 
    *** On this one,  remember those 39 mares & foals from TX?  it was this load specifically, & the Agency’s ability to nail them as it was happening, so kudo’s to those who assisted with identifying which auction they were coming from, and La. Dept of Ag’s quick work with their Texas counterparts! 
 
4) Transportation of Equines across state lines without EIA (Coggins) certs 
   *** same situation as above – it was those mares/foals that this was pertaining to) 
 
5) Improper disposal of animal remains. 
     *** Some may remember TMS’s ranting video about the Dept of Ag flying overhead for an hour and 15 min…   in reality, the Dept of Ag was overhead for 15 min only – at max.  The “hour and a half” that she made reference to, was obtained from public records that record the entire flight duration – and the authorities chartered their agency plane from a location not close to Pitkin.
Total fines $3150,  payable in 30 days or contempt.  I know some may say “oh that’s too low”  but, the fact of the matter is that all of these charges COULD have been combined into one summary $1000 fine (or less) so it is a huge statement, that the Board rejected this agreement which was proposed by Thompson’s attorney, and instead treated each violation separately. 
 
In addition, there were numerous USDA vets present at the hearing, another indication that federal authorities are tuned into this situation and will be more engaged going forward.

Public Hearing on May 18th, 2018 – Gary Thompson

Gary Thompson was not present. His attorney represented them.
Summary: $1000 fine imposed.

1) this was for movement of CATTLE from Florida to La. without paperwork. had absolutely nothing to do with the recent horrific horse trailer accidents which are active investigations.

2) the vets in Fla would not issue paperwork (commendable!) b/c the cattle were not in their opinion healthy enough to make the trip. Thompson’s moved them anyway, no surprise. Fla vets alerted La. Dept of Ag. When the trailer was stopped, there were dead cattle found to be on board.

3) this is the MAXIMUM fine that the Board could’ve been imposed for this infraction, per the Louisiana law.

4) There is, in the state of La, legislation making it’s way thru which when enacted, will change the fine from one per incident, to one per ANIMAL. Hopefully, this change will be expedited thru. I want to try & find more details on the bill, current status, etc. Had this been in place already, the fine would’ve been +$30,000.

5) To reiterate, the Animal Board of Health did the MOST they could do, with the laws. they did not settle. They did not dismiss.

6) There will be a separate post with the police report from the WI accident, which will clearly show that there is more in the works, for this specific incident.

7) the findings from the hearing will be available via open records request which I’ll submit for on Monday
