On Saturday, Nov. 23, Anne Lee of Lee Top dairy farm got a call from a friend with some sickening news. He told her he found one of her horses hurt in the pasture it appeared that the horse had been shot.

Lee called the veterinarian to save the horse. She stayed with Dakota but the horse did not live through the night.

Now a full two weeks later, Lee still does not know what really happened to Dakota. Not knowing is difficult for the Lees.

Lee believes the horse was shot in a hunting accident or someone shot her deliberately. The remaining five horses are now kept in a pasture close to home. The Lees are understandably concerned and wan to keep the horses safe.

According to Action News, the NY Department of Conservation is still investigating.

Lee says Dakota was her daughter Paige’s horse. The youngster is seven years old and something like this is difficult to explain to a child let alone to rationalize it. Her daughter speaks often about Dakota. She is afraid to replace Dakota – she does not want Dakota to be mad at her.

Since the horse was shot, the family has witnessed many acts of kindness. One woman offered to give Paige her own beautiful horse. Another person set up a website to raise money for a reward. So far, $755 has been raised and money is coming in from as far south as Florida.
