The killing of a beloved horse occurred back on July 24, 2010, and the crime has never been solved. Still, a local horse owner in Flour Bluff, Texas, is looking for answers. The three years that passed have not diminished her anguish at having lost this horse after someone came on her property to shoot and kill him.
The horse owner went to feed her horses at her Scarlet Oak and Yorktown property, in Flour Bluff back in July of 2010. Her gray Quarter horse was injured. Those injuries turned out to be two separate gunshot wounds – one injury was to his left lower jaw and the other was to the left side of his body.
She sought the professional medical help of a San Antonio veterinarian at the time of the shooting, but he was unable to save her horse.
Her horses are always confined to a fenced area and do not get out on their own. She had no idea, and still does not, as to why someone would shoot one of her horses.
She tells reporters that the value of the Quarter horse plus expenses for medical care and then euthanasia and burial amounted to $17,000.
She pleads with the public to help her identify the responsible killer of her horse. If you can offer any information about this crime, please call Crime Stoppers at 361-888-8477, or visit www.888tips.com. Remember, the information you provide could earn a cash reward.
