Langley veterinarians charged in horse neglect case

April 22, 2009

Langley veterinarians Mark Marohn and Carol Schoyen-Marohn have each been charged with two counts of animal cruelty after the BC SPCA discovered six emaciated and badly neglected horses in their care. The couple faces charges under both the Criminal Code of Canada and the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. They make their first court appearance in Surrey on April 24.
