I just registered because of this.
I don't own horses, but like any normal person I am completely disgusted by this. I know what I'd do if somebody did that to my dogs, I can't imagine what these poor people must be going through. I also live in south Florida (Broward County) and I understand any person who could do this to a domesticated animal could also commit a wide range of crimes, including the serial killings of humans.
I also know this will continue until these people are stopped, they will not quit on their own and the more they will get away with it, the more it is likely that they could be copied by others with no respect for life.
In any case, I happen to be a licensed firearms dealer. My customers are usually military and law enforcement for the most part, but I'd like to offer my services to anyone in South Florida who might decide to arm themselves to protect their horse from these savages.
I'll be more than happy to take time with a first time firearm owner to discuss what might be the best option for them and find something within their budget. I'll be very fair on pricing given this situation. I'd love to contribute to seeing these butchers stopped.
If anyone in the south Florida areas is interested please feel free to shoot me an email and I'll be more than happy to set up an appointment.
