COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - A Golden Gate Estates woman will never own horses again. A judge revoked that right after Domestic Animal Services said Tina Ciancaglini hoarded horses and didn't feed them properly.
"I think its unfair," said Ciancaglini. I'm in no way shape or form a horse hoarder.
Ciancaglini gave up 30 of her malnourished horses to rescue farms across the state because she said she couldn't afford to feed them.
"I had a rescue and I had financial issues," said Ciancaglini.
Ciancaglini tells Wink she owned numerous horses because she was running a horse rescue. She says she even set it up as a non-profit. But, a judge ruled against Ciancaglini.
"The court's ruling was very fair," said Amanda Townsend, Director of Domestic Animal Services. "I think we will be able to protect animals and horses in the future."
Ciancaglini sees it differently.
"It just doesn't seem quite fair, but life isn't fair I guess," said Ciancaglini.
