Two dead mules inspire lawsuit against Lubbock museum

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A San Antonio man has sued the Dan Taylor of Lubbock, President of the Lubbock-based American Museum of Agriculture. 

Patrick Greene claims that Taylor violated state law by having two mules killed and professionally stuffed for use as an exhibit.  Greene claims that Taylor bough the mules for "nefarious purpose" and therefore they become property of the state.  He claims that Taylor "failed unreasonably to provide necessary food, water or care for 2 livestock animals."

Greene seeks a court order that the mules be taken from Taylor and given a proper burial. 

The museum has not yet filed its side of the story in court records.  Check back with KCBD.com in the coming days for an update.
