    Feel sick. What is wrong with people?!

    The headline on my local news programme: "Dartmoor foal killed and mutilated in a ritualistic act".

    *GRAPHIC INFO*

    On Monday night (a full moon, no less), a 2 month old Dartmoor pony colt was caught, killed and mutilated. It had had it's tongue, right ear, genitals and eyes removed, and was surrounded by a circle of burnt grass. It also had traces of white paint on it's leg.

    It is believed that it was done during a Satanist or Pagan ritual, and the police are looking for the disgusting people who committed this horrific act.

    Urgh.

    Full story *contains graphic pictures*:

    How can anyone do this.. Anyone who can mutilate an animal like that is capable of being dangerous to another human being.

    What is even sadder is that even if they catch the group who did this it own't keep it form happening again. People in that type of, what should I call it, fanatic lifestyle/belief won't change their practices. Animals to those types are not feeling creatures..they are a blood sacrifice.

    In many states, while not a law but a common practice, animal shelters will not adopt out black cats from a week before Halloween to a full month after (not until more towards Christmas) for exactly the same reason. Black cats were being used in ritual sacrifices at that time of year.

    I can't even comment on this particular incident as I don't have the words to convey; I didn't even bother reading the article...wouldn't have been able to handle it. Can only pray it was quick and the pony wasn't cognizant to the mutilation. I can imagine a lot of people in the area aren't sleeping too well and keeping more than an extra close eye on their animals..all types.

    Stories like this make me think "eye for an eye".
    Maybe those disgusting people should have the same thing done to them.

    poor pony, I don't understand how people can be so messed up.

    Yes! They actually send out reminders around here not to let your black cats outside during halloween. We have 2 black cats that go in and out, and we always make sure they are tucked away safe and sound in the house. It's sad. :(
    I would be sleeping with one eye open because like LovesMyDunnBoy said, anyone who is capable of doing this to an animal is capable of doing it to a human.

    It is mainly wild animals in this area - it is a National Park, so sparsely populated with small towns, but most of the horses in the area are feral. Unfortunately, they are very used to humans, with it being a very popular tourist and hiker destination, which was probably this poor boy's downfall.

    This isn't the first horror story from the UK that I've seen recently - I get the Horse & Hound sent over here.
    Its terrible to think that these monsters are maybe standing next to us in a queue - along with all the child molesters and serial killers
    The only thing we can do is to do everything in our power to not let our animals or ourselves become the next victim but as so many people graze their horses - and stable them on land that's not attached to their property its not an easy thing to do
    It would be wonderful if we could enjoy freedom but sadly that's not the case
