what kind of a sick fuck would do something like this? I swear, I'm no PETA fanatic, but I would gouge out this sick fuck's eyes with zero guilt: Former race horse shot more than 50 times in southern Utah VINS, Utah (ABC 4 News) - Clark Ence went to the 3 Mile Corral outside of Ivins Sunday night to feed his two horses. As he approached, he noticed one of the horses was down on its side. At first Ence thought nothing of it. But then he saw the blood. "Yes, I mite" was a 10-year-old quarter horse that won his share of races before being retired. In retirement, the Ence family has given him the nickname "Crookneck." Now "Crookneck" is dead. Investigators estimate the horse was shot up to 50 times by a small caliber weapon. All of the shots were in the torso. There was no "mercy" shot to the head. Death was slow and painful. This horse wasn't just killed, he was tortured. The Ence family is devastated. Tens of thousands of dollars had been put into that horse during its lifetime. But more importantly, it was part of the family. They now worry about their other quarter horse, "Jenny", as well as the animals kept in corrals in the vicinity. John Paul Fox, a veteran investigator with the Humane Society of Utah has seen this before. He said the person or persons who committed the crime fit one of two profiles: 1) A loner with a grudge against the family. 2) Teenagers with access to weapons. If teenagers are responsible, they will likely brag about it to their friends or perhaps even put up the video of the slaughter on YouTube. They will probably be caught. But the loner, he said, "may never be caught." Under current Utah law, animal cruelty is a misdemeanor. But, prosecutors could also charge a suspect with criminal mischief. The animal's value would likely make that charge a felony. The Ence family is offering a reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction. Anyone with information is asked to call the Washington County Sheriff's Office at 435-656-6500.
