I certainly wouldn't want to put a horse down with a bat it doesn't sound to me like he intended to torture it. It also sounds like a huge waste of money in a state that is among the poorest in our country. I once had to put down a deer that had been hit by a car with a metal baseball bat. It took two swings to end the animals misery. While it was not pleasant it was needed and it was the kindest thing that could be done.

^^ Yes, but they could have easily called a vet. It only takes a few minutes to call the vet and tell them that you think they should put down your horse. There are alternatives and I don't think the horse really needed to endure that kind of suffering. And yes, I understand that you did it with a deer, but this kid hit the pony 40 or so times plus jumped on it's ribs. Apparently the pony couldn't stand on it's own but it had tried to while it was being attacked which resulted in it being hog tied. I think much kinder things could have been done here.

Oh my goodness.

Anyway's yes I agree, there is amuch more humaine way into dealing with this.
Why a baseball bat? Why not a gun, which is much more humane if used right.
Why was this 'owner' so CARELESS, she should have called the vet.

I personally see this as animal abuse, to both of their sides, I am not saying that one or the other had abused the animals. Even if he had tooken care of it for a short amount of time.
He still did things that could have been avoidable.

It would have been so much more sensable to actually call a vet, or sell the animal or something to someone actually WILLING to take care of it. The owner shouldn't of have shrugged his care into someone else.

I honestly don't think he took this the right way, I think alot more effort could have been made into finding some other placement for the animal.

But this is just sad, who in the world would do this :(
Makes me sick.

I agree completely. I also read in another article on this case that even though the horse could barely stand, it was still fully able to do things, eat, etc. I think she didn't call the vet because she didn't want the costs..

If she didnt want the costs, she shouldnt own the animal, plain and simple.

Do I think the pony was tortured? Yes.
But I don't think it was intentional. If you can't afford to put the vet down, bullets are dirt cheap and much quicker and more painless.

It's absolutely disgusting what happened but I can see where the jury came to their conclusion.

We had to shoot a llama on sunday. He had a broken neck. Its usually not hard to find someone who owns a gun. The hard part is killing it with one shot.

This is disgusting. The owner should be the one on trial here as well.
