Punish Man Accused of Sawing Off Live Horse’s Leg

Target: Charles Howland, Prosecuting Attorney for Morrow County, Ohio

Goal: Seek jail time for the man who allegedly amputated his horse’s leg with a saw.

A man is facing animal cruelty charges after allegedly sawing off a horse’s leg without any anesthesia or sedation. According to police, the horse had a broken leg when owner Mark Hill of Morrow County, Ohio amputated the leg above the knee by himself instead of taking the animal to a veterinarian. Veterinarians called to the scene had to euthanize the animal due to the extent of its injuries.

Generally, a broken leg spells the end of a horse’s life, even with modern advances in veterinary technologies and techniques. This is because, in comparison to a human, horses must support an extreme amount of weight with their legs. It’s also nearly impossible for a horse to keep their weight off of the injured leg as it’s healing.

While Hill may have been trying to save this horse from euthanasia, this alleged hack job amputation would have only served to keep the horse in pain for its entire life. Veterinarians say that while the leg may have been saved if Hill had taken the horse to receive proper care, this amputation meant that euthanasia was the only humane option.

This alleged cruelty is absolutely shocking. How a man could, in good conscience, saw the leg off of a screaming animal is unknown. If found guilty, Hill could face up to six months in jail. Sign the petition below to ask the prosecutor to seek jail time in what appears to be deliberate neglect for the well-being of this animal.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Howland,

Mark Hill, a Morrow County resident, is facing charges of animal cruelty for allegedly using a saw to amputate an injured horse’s leg. The amputation was reportedly done without sedation or anesthesia. It’s possible that Hill didn’t bring the horse to a veterinarian because he was afraid that the vet would say that the only humane option was euthanasia, but he didn’t even give the horse a chance — the horse was euthanized anyways due to the severity of its injuries.

This alleged act of cruelty is absolutely shocking. In order to ensure justice is served for this poor animal, we ask you to seek the maximum possible penalty for Hill, if he is found guilty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  2. Sheila Coles says:

    Don’t fine him,don’t put him in prison,saw both his legs off then kick this vile piece of shit into the sewers to die an agonising death and then rot in hell.

  3. Keep the man in jail for a long time… Not six months, should be way longer than that.. Give him atleast 2 years or more years in jail… Or cut one of his leg off to see how it feel of what he did to that POOR horse.. He should have taken his horse to the vet…

  4. Wow, the extreme cruelty involved here is deplorable. This ass needs serious jail time, banning from animal contact or ownership for life, huge fines and a broken leg of his own.

  5. Absolutely Angry says:

    Wow! You must ask yourself what kind of stable, humane person would try this approach to their pet, uhhh they wouldn’t.I suggest you prosecute this idiot and stick him in a cage with the jerk off who thought taking a chainsaw to his dogs snout for dumping his beer was a good idea. Round up all these stupid mo fo’s and make an example as you change the laws! Maybe if this country was smart enough to implement the proper penalty for the crime we’d not have to deal with the severe cases of animal cruelty daily because people would actually be accountable for their actions! This country is just falling apart to hold any moral or ethical values! Nothing changes if nothing!

  6. Absolutely Angry says:

    CHANGES

  7. Oh my f***ing god…this guy OBVIOUSLY has no working brain OR heart. Six months??? Should be six YEARS in jail, OR a psych ward!!!!

  8. Only 6 months in jail?! 6 years in prison is far to lenient for this sadistic monster!

    Is this country completely without ethics, morals, compassion, empathy–ARE WE BREEDING INSANITY?!

    The screaming agony of the poor horse would outrage, astound any NORMAL decent person–unlike this psychopath!

  9. Mark Betti says:

    What kind of sick disturbed psychopath would saw off the leg of an animal?! How could anyone honestly think that would end the animal’s pain? Please lock him up and throw away the key.

  10. Do the same to that m….r f…..g bastard!! And his dick!!

  11. Silver wing says:

    This person is disturbed. He should be locked away for some good time.

  12. MARK HILL NEEDS TO BE PUT IN PRISON AND HAVE ITS HEAD CHECKED NOW. JUSTICE FOR THIS GREAT HORSE NOW.

  13. Saw his Fucking leg off .This bastard needs to be tortured just like the horse .Laws are not hard enough wish I was in charge.

  14. Angela Rabon says:

    How disgusting!! To think of the cruelty this poor horse suffered and Hill is only being charged with second degree misdemeanor animal cruelty. Horses are not considered companion animals in Ohio, and are labeled livestock. That is why he only faces six-months in jail. Makes me angry!!

  17. Six months? No. Fuck that! It’s past time we start implementing harsher, longer sentences on these people. It’s a slap on the wrist. That’s why these evil people will continue perpetrating all kinds of abuse on these precious, innocent animals!
