Anne Marie Gamache, a concerned citizen, spoke out at Tuesday's Biloxi City Council meeting about the living conditions of some livestock behind her house. The animals in question belong to the Beauvoir, and are used for tours, picnics, and to pull a wooden cart around the property. The Biloxi resident feels that the animals are not cared for properly, and do not have access to fresh water or shelter from the weather.

After the meeting the City of Biloxi researched the zoning and found that that area may not be zoned for keeping large animals, and is currently reaching out to Beauvoir officials to reach a peaceful resolution. Gamache is happy that the city is looking into the issue, but hopes that something is done soon.

Gamache says, "Get the proper facilities, a barn. They have no shelter. They're just out here roaming around the property, or get rid of the animals. I live at the beach, I don't live at a farm. If I wanted to live at a farm, I'd live out in the country."

News 25 reached out to Beauvoir officials for a statement, but they were not available for an interview.
