    In the original article there was indication that a broad head had been used but cut out of the animal... it sounds like it was mistaken for a fence t-post.

    Surprising to think those could be mixed up.

    I have to wonder if there was insurance on the pony. That may explain the owners attitude and refusing to accept why the pony is dead. I had a relative who used to own race horses and they were all insured for accidental death as long as the owners negligence wasn't to blame. Just a possibility

    I understand now. The original post was for articles in the Hamilton News and the Halton News. Both are small, free, community newspapers. The Hamilton Spectator is a completely separate newspaper from these. All the references to the Hamilton Spec had me confused that there was a missing link in the thread to another story about this in the Spec. but there never was a link to a story about this in the Hamilton Spec in this thread.

    Fence getting "cut" was likely from moonpie running into it and then impaling herself on one of the fence posts. It's not uncommon for horses to injure themselves on fences. Especially poorly constructed ones.

    The police also said that upon examination, they found that the fence was NOT cut just broken as it was rusted through, no evidence of any broadhead.

    "Perhaps he should be charged for causing undue suffering an death for poor ol moonpie since he felt it was ok to keep him in such poor and dangerous conditions. "

    I didn't want to say anything about him , but it is up to the owner of any animal , to make sure that they cannot get hurt in their surroundings, my wife and I had Quarter Horses for many years and it is surprising how easily they can get hurt by "just horsing around"

    This truly disgusts me. The gullible public was convinced that a disgruntled, vindictive 'hunter' cut a fence, and shot a cute, little pony with a crossbow. 'Evidence' is found, and the farmer conducts an investigation Dispicable murder of a pet! A fund gets set up. People attend a service for the poor thing. Awwww, such a terrible shame.

    But wait!..... No, what REALLY happened was that the fence was broken from rust and neglect, and a farmer allowed his prize pony to fall and fatally injure itself through his own negligence. It has NOTHING to do with a hunter, or crossbow, or any other person......but most of the public will still hold hunters in a bad light.

    I must admit that when I heard the REAL STORY on the radio I laughed out loud at the audacity of the owner, the media, and the publicity. I feel badly for the beast and the children that loved it, but my stomach hurt from laughing so hard.

    I do believe insurance fraud entered somebody's mind, too.

    Disgusting

    If that tbar caused a broadhead type wound as identified by the experts, i want to get my hands on one. Put a pony down within 40 yards that'll work wonders on a deer.

    Really though, I am relieved that they at least ruled the bow thing out. As hunters we don't need this nonsense being published by the spec, but I bet nobody is surprised when they jumped to conclusions.

    Horse shot with crossbow by a hunter?


    Man beats horse to death with hockey stick, must have been a hockey player?

    Horse is slain by man wielding sword, must have been a knight?

    Stupid stupid stupid
