The Humane Society of the United States is offering a reward up to $2,500 for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of the person or people responsible for dragging a blind 10-year-old pony to death April 30 in Shenango Township, Pa.
Mercer County Humane Society officers stated that on Apr. 30, Tory Morgan found the remains of her pony, Kahlua, on her Shenango Township property. Officers believe the pony was roped to an all-terrain vehicle and dragged, sustaining broken legs and injuries to his chest and stomach. Four of Morgan's other horses sustained cuts and scratches, which officers believe the horses might have sustained while fleeing the assailant or assailants.
The Mercer County Humane Society is investigating. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call 724/981-5445.
