    Lol. He was worried the horses would ruin his hunt but the warning shot wouldn't? Thats a special kind of logic there.
    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

    The horse charged him and he had to shoot to save himself? That might work if the judge had never been around horses....

    Always someone out there ready to give hunters a bad name.

    Holy jumping to conclusions Batman. It was a hunter? with a rifle? No wait , must of been a crossbow? Only a wack job would kill a pony and for the paper to report it as a hunter ? WTF. But as Welsh has pointed out before the general public will fail to see the difference.

    Very sad.

    Really? Have a 1/2 acre lot fenced in dog has the run of the back yard during the day however at night or when not supervised it gets kenneled. Do I have too guess not however to do my part to reduce risk of whatever I choose too. Its about personal responsibilities and reducing risks.

    I live within earshot of this story...Seeing a grown man (and woman cry on CHCH news) for his horse was a bit unsettling.
    Judging by his tears, it was like he lost his child..
    However, it was assumed hunters or somebody with a bow, only because the animal was cut up the length to have an arrow and all evidence removed.
    It's very hard to find a hunting spot in this area without landowners permission..Therefore, it had to be a trespasser, or somebody with total disregard. The owner was correct in claiming that mistaken identity is not and excuse..If you can't tell the difference between horse and deer, then you've got issues.

    I felt for him. He deserves justice.

    I think that's sort of the point of many responses here, I don't think anyone believes the mistaken identy case being made. No hunter killed the horse by mistake; someone who doesn't like horses (or those horses) killed the horse.

    I like the line...On Nov. 12, Stoltzfus was unknowingly riding on private property when he was confronted by an angry man. So this guy is trespassing. Tries to pass it off claiming "unknowingly". Well if you don't know where your property ends you have bigger problems. Forget the hunter its more likely a Hatfields and McCoy situation. This guy thinks he's self entitled to ride where he wants (the damaged fence may have been self initiated to provided easier access for himself.) neighbour may have said stop or else......

    1/2acre lot. Ok, I get where you're coming from. We have 222 acres with beef cattle and horses. Are you suggesting we should herd all of our livestock into the barns every night because it's deer season? I think we're looking at this very differently.

    Light-heartedly, I often get annoyed when people call horses livestock. To me, they're no more livestock than a dog is. We don't eat, get milk or wool from horses - they're just pets like dog 'round here.
