WAGONER, Okla. – Glenda Cook says it is a crime that she simply doesn’t understand.
“If they’re cold-hearted enough to walk up to just a baby horse and put a bullet in the top of her head, they could do that to a person,” Cook said.
On Saturday morning, Cook says she walked outside her home and saw her 8-month-old foal, Skippy, lying on the ground.
When she ran over to the horse, she found a gunshot wound between the horse’s ears.
At first, she assumed that an errant shot from a hunter may have killed Skippy. However, deputies suspected someone with a cruel intention.
According to KJRH, deputies located footprints in the dirt from the locked gate to the place where Skippy was sleeping.
“You don’t know that the next time they do that, it’s not going to be pointed at a human being,” Cook said. “They need to be caught. Not just to pay for killing that filly, but to protect the next person in line.”
Right now, a $1,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible.
