Id love to know the color of the pony. Never ride a buckskin in the mountains during hunting season!

I happen to live in MD, quite near Assateague Island.
The National Park Service only allows a certain number of people to hunt on Assateague at any given time.
And I believe they need a hunting 'permit' to be there, as well, they check in and out when arriving and leaving the island.
They usually know who is hunting on the island, and generally, they know where they are hunting, at any given time.
They might find out who it was that shot this pony, and the hunter could be charged.
Parts of Assateague Island are owned, and managed by the states of Maryland and Virginia,
and parts of Assateague Island are owned by the federal government.

Most likely they will find who did this and they will be fined and charged.

Yep!!
Exactly.
Its not accidental.
If anything it was negligence.

It could be an accident.


Wildlife moves. You shoot at a deer that is standing there. The deer moves at the last second as does a horse that was not in your line of site when you set up your shot.

Ahahahahaha! Nice one! But a lot of the time people don't take precautions...lol

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Well if that is what happened here then that guy should play the lottery... because that is a one in a million shot.
