"Murder" may be a bit strong to use in this case, but I agree that the scumwad needs to be punished as severely as possible.

This criminal behavior should be treated as such. He committed murder when he snuffed out the lives of these little horses. These types of atrocities will not begin to stop or, at the very least, slow down, until our elected officials and people "in charge" start treating animal neglect, cruelty, abuse, torture, and murder as if it was a human being on the receiving end.

Anyone who will just "go off" on a defenseless, voiceless, animal is someone that society does not need or want living among the rest of us. The next next time he loses his temper, it could be your child he takes out his anger on. At the very least, this criminal should be jailed for a very long time while undergoing mandatory psychiatric help.

Way to go! Take it out on poor defenseless animals because they are the ones who didn't pay him. Sicko. How is this only property damage? He killed something that was LIVING!!! That is MURDER! He deserves a long jail sentence. Well, after reading the whole article, it says he will get a longer jail sentence with the charge of property damage than ill-treating an animal. Amazing!

For killing these horses this manshould receive the greatest sentence possible. Then laws should be passed that give protection to animals..Then when this man harms another animal justice can be served.

Yes, murder. Just because it is a horse does not make that animal's life somehow less valuable. Where do humans get the idea that their lives are somehow sacrosanct and every other living being is of lesser value?! Had a human been killed in this way it would be viewed as murder. Despicable way to settle an argument by a cowardly individual.

and these poor horses were only considered as property!!! Possibly to get a heavier sentence. Its all wrong!! The department of environment should be passing heavier penalties for this wilful cruelty! The pain & the fear & trauma these poor horses had to go through and the fear stress & trauma the ones that were left to live must have felt. It is murder, if it had have been humans it would have been considered and for him to do this to an innocent animal should receive the same penalty for murder of a person. People that have killed animals are renowned to go on to killing people

Amused itself to death

We watched the tragedy unfold
We did as we were told
We bought and sold
It was the greatest show on earth
But then it was over
We oohed and aahed
We drove our racing cars
We ate our last few jars of caviar
And somewhere out there in the stars
A keen-eyed look-out
Spied a flickering light
Our last hurrah
And when they found our shadows
Grouped around the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry no feelings left
This species has amused itself to death
