    Horse Hit & Run... Intentionally

    I have no words to describe what is going through my head after reading this.
    Here's the news article
    BREAKING: Horse Killed In ‘Intentional’ Act

    Seriously where do you even start with this one? Hate crime, attempted murder, animal cruelty, hit & run... This is messed up.

    I am sitting here literally with my jaw in my lap. The only thing I can come up with to say isn't forum appropriate.

    How someone can go from 'irritated driver' to running their grand am into a horse to kill it just stuns me.

    What a sick puppy. I don't know what he will be charged with but I am assuming attempted murder should be one of them. Animal cruelty, Hit and Run, failure to render aid. I am sickened that this poor horse was killed in such a deliberate manner and I am glad that the two Amish men were not hurt as they could have been killed also.

    Wow, what if there had been a child in the carriage? People really need to learn to control their tempers. That is assault with a deadly weapon at least! And, goodness, he could have easily....oi, really, is reacting to an insult worth life in prison for murder?

    I hope he is booked on attempted murder, cruelty to animals and malicious destruction of property.

    The Amish... seriously. It boggles my mind that the driver ran down an Amish buggy.
    Specifically targeting the horse with no regard to the lives of the horse or people. Near/in a Walmart parking lot with video and actual witnesses. And thought he could drive off and get away with it. I can only hope the police push the charges since the Amish in this area are known for not involving themselves in "English" law, even when deaths have occurred from hit and runs in the past.

    I just hope that the horse really did die instantly.

    What could possibly have possessed the driver to run the horse down? I'm sure he didn't drive away in an unscathed car, and that alone would usually be enough to deter people from intentional violence like this.

    This is truly sick, and it makes me glad that I live in a country community where horses are at least partially respected on roads. Not even the stupidest driver in the district would do something like this.
