$100K Reward: Mustangs Die After Water Supply Is Cut Off

Published by Ashley Palmer.

Mustang Monument, a sanctuary in Nevada for mustangs who were rescued before they could reach the slaughterhouse, is seeking information regarding the deaths of at least a dozen horses who died of thirst after all water supplies were deliberately turned off. The withered bodies of the dead horses were scattered near the sabotaged water sources, which left them without a drop of water in the blistering heat. Dehydration is painful and slow, and the distraught owner of the rescue ranch is anxious to find the perpetrator or perpetrators before more animals suffer.

The owner is offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible.

If you have any information regarding this crime, please contact Rean Wegley at 858-759-5517 or [email protected].
