The one that attacked innocent animal is sick, sadistic creature and deserves full punishment. That maniac is
enjoying in pain. He should feel cruelty on his skin.

Whoever did this needs to have the same exact thing done to them in the same way. Seriously! They are not worth the air they breathe.

I know this isn't the answer but tie this monster and the guy who dragged the dog to death each behind a big
strong horse in the dessert ;on a hot day over ground covered in sharp litlle stones and sharp little cacti.
Tie their wrists together and say giddy up go at medium speed for bout 3 clicks.
Don't let them die now ; just make a statement they won't soon forget. Ahh that feels better.

The saddset part of this story is that the perpetrator was probably a child trying out his or her new bow and arrows. An adult would have surely killed the horse. But, a child just doesn't have the strength to shoot with any precision. God help us because you know they will progress to humans.

No idea why people want to be so cruel. The horse has done nothing to harm them. Thanks Simone.

if they ever catch the cretins that did this, let's shoot them with four arrows.

Even if Misty was a...pig (not that i have anything against pigs)... she does not deserve this malicious torture that could easily have led to death and certainly left her in pain and fearful. I hope is an isolated case.

Poor Misty.....If I am right and there IS a God, surely he has a special plan for the scum capable of this kind of senseless cruelty. It is especially disturbing when it is a trusting child or animal that is the victim. Noted Simone.
