Asshat Alert: Bend, Oregon

You know, I don't think shooting is an unacceptable form of euthanasia. I truly have no problem with an expert shot dispatching a horse that way. But just as with hunting, once you shoot, you HAVE to kill!

Some asshat near Bend, Oregon let this 5 year old bay Arabian gelding wander away, shot in the head but not dead, with a severe leg wound, for a week until he was found. He's going to live and he's getting treatment now.

Now, I agree with the vet - the rumor mill being what it is, somebody knows whose horse this is. If you do, please contact KTVZ with your tip.
