Neighbor's Horse Shot

This is a photo of Yukon, the 3 year old gelding that was shot to death this afternoon while he was grazing out in his pasture. The owner noticed him lying there and thought he was asleep, they went out to check on him and discovered the stunning crime. It is so tragic, but scary at the same time because it happened very close to our barn. It just makes me sick to think there are such losers out there that would do something like this. The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is offering a reward and there is a tip line (503-723-4949)if anyone knows anything about what happened to beautiful Yukon. Here is a link to the news story.

How horrible! My heart goes out to the horses family. I hope they catch the jerks who did it and I wish they had harsher punishments for crimes such as these. Just reminds us to hug our horses closer and give lots of cookies.

That's so terrible! Your poor neighbors...and so close to your home. I read the article and it seems like a lot of people around you are interested in this story from all the comments so I hope they catch whoever did this soon. Keep us all undated and watch out...if they are shooting horses who knows what they will do next.

How truly sad. Same thing happened in our area last year. Someone shot a families beloved horse. I don't think they ever figured out who did it.

Ugh, that's awful. We had a horse shooting happen ten minutes away from us last year, and they never found who did it. I cannot understand someone being that mean. ?!?!?!
