On October 31, Dallas County law-enforcement officials responded to reports of two severely underweight horses apparently abandoned on the side of the road in Seagoville, Texas. Both horses appeared to be malnourished and suffered from visible injuries, and one had wounds around his neck, apparently from being tied up for extended periods of time. One was euthanized, and the other was shot repeatedly at the scene in a totally botched attempt to end his life.
Dallas County Sheriff's Department
Authorities are investigating who might have abandoned the horses but have yet to make any arrests in the case, prompting PETA to offer a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction on cruelty charges of the person or persons responsible for this abuse and neglect.
We need your help to find out who did this!
