Three years have passed since hundreds of heavily armed police officers stormed the infamous Quälhof in Hefenhofen TG. The pictures of dead and emaciated horses shocked the whole of Switzerland in summer 2017. According to a court insider, at least 13 horses should have died on the farm of Ulrich K. * (52) in the months before the court clearance (BLICK reported).

At the scene of the event, where K. has been resisting the authorities for years, calm has returned. Since his animals were confiscated and auctioned off, Switzerland’s best-known animal torturer has primarily dedicated himself to agriculture.
