Elderly Horse Reportedly Punched and Hit With Rocks Deserves Justice

Target: Maricopa County District Attorney Alister Adel
Goal: Pursue maximum punishment of two men accused of viciously attacking horse.

Two men were caught on camera hitting an elderly horse and throwing rocks at him. The attack lasted half an hour while the horse was trapped in his pen. The horse, named Indy, is 30 years old and is retired.

Indy’s owner stated, “This is supposed to be [his] good ole days, and then this happens.”

The owners first realized something was wrong when they noticed some rocks in Indy’s pen while they were feeding him. “We saw a river rock in his pen,” said owner, Sean Pietsch. “So we checked the security cameras and that’s when we discovered two individuals had come into the yard at 1 a.m. and were in here for about 30 minutes straight — assaulting the horses, throwing river rocks at them, punching them. All kinds of horrible, horrible things.”

Per the security camera footage, the attackers fled when the owner stepped out on to his porch in the middle of the night. “I almost feel guilty that I was 200 feet away and didn’t know, and didn’t stop it,” he said.

The attackers repeatedly threw large rocks at the enclosed animal.

“He was crashing into the rails, trying to do everything to get away from them — to get out of his pen,” said Sean.

Recently, sheriff’s deputies arrested two individuals and charged them with this alleged crime. The suspects have not yet been proven to be responsible for this horrific attack and are facing trial on the charges. Ask prosecutors to vigorously pursue this case.


Dear District Attorney Alister Adel,

Two individuals were recently arrested and charged with burglary and animal cruelty charges for an alleged attack on an elderly horse. The horse is 30 years old and was locked in his pen when the suspects allegedly attacked him with rocks and their fists.

The attack went on for 30 minutes until the owner just happened to come out on his porch. While the horse survived the attack, he is facing severe emotional trauma from this incident.

I ask that you please devote all resources necessary to fully and vigorously prosecute the two individuals accused of this heinous crime.

[Your Name Here]

  1. They need a good thrashing then given the same treatment. Absolutely appalling if they go un punished.

  2. I will Never understand Why people are so cruel to Defenseless Animals! This act was so Evil, these people should be PUNISHED TO THE MAXIMUM!!!!

  3. Young bastards!!

  4. Give the same treatment!!!!!

  5. These people make me sick to my stomach.

  6. Maria Bertrand says:

    They deserve to get the same thing back when they are locked up in their jail cells. Whip rocks at them until they are down.

    They deserve maximum punishment!!! and so much more….the law’s goal is to put an end to these types of vicious violent acts…PLEASE GIVE INDY JUSTICE!!!!

    I am so sorry Indy…..

  7. If these ass holes are in film there should be no allegedly in thus charge. Put them in a pen and stone them !!!!!
    What horrible sadistic men.

      “Allegedly” as in “innocent until proven guilty in a court of law”. The video evidence is probably irrefutable, UNLESS some shyster attorney gets them off because people insisted they were guilty before their court trial.

      They need to be PROVEN guilty. Then they need to go to prison where their molestation crimes are widely known to all the other prisoners…

  8. The cruelest curse awaits you two scum❗👺👹👺👹💀💀

  9. These two disgusting motherfuckers need to be taken out into the streets and be stoned to death with all other fucking animal abusers

  10. I wish the owner would have caught them in the act and shot them in the face with a shotgun. Seriously. If that was a headline, I would be floating on cloud 9 for a week!

  11. Tonia Mansfield says:

    This behavior shouldn’t tolerated. It’s high time to give animal abusers the punishment they so deserve. Please a pillar to the community and set an example. Imagine if they are capable of this behavior think of what they could be or are doing to children.

  12. Shirley Lemieux says:

    There are several crime charges here but the worst is torturing horses that include an elderly horse. It must have been extremely painful for these horses to endure rocks being thrown at them for over a half an hour while enclosed in their pens. I hope authorities have the people arrested for this crime. I also hope the horse owner pursues charges of his own for the torture of his horses because there is a high probability that these horses have suffered traumatic affects from this crime.

  13. If this had happened to my 37 year old horse, these assholes would call the police themselves, cause if left to me they’d be leaving in a Body Bag!!

    Leave Indy and any other animals alone!!!!!

  14. Rose Coffey says:

    Don’t let these jerks off! They are cowardly creeps and most definitely need to be taught a lesson that they will not forget.

  15. Those HUMAN GARGE low life should be killed to clean up society!

  16. Matt Nicholas says:

    I’m not one bit surprised that beautiful horse is suffering from trauma – imagine it trying to escape such an onslaught and having no means of escape or defence. There are some vicious, evil demons out there. Let the punishment fit the crime… I mean how else are they gonna learn? I’m thinking of a phrase that rhymes with ducking blunts…

  17. Soooooo, when they are put in a jail cell do the owners of the horses get to throw rocks and punches at them? Fair is fair.


  19. Saw the entire video on YouTube. I couldn’t watch it without hyperventilating. Someone, somewhere knows very well who these subhuman criminals are. Please come forward so they can be prosecuted!

  20. Nadine brundage says:

    Low life sick pieces of shit need to be shipped to Afghanistan and let them feel what stoning is. Those poor horses were so tormented by these two scum while locked in their pens with no escape. Do not let these creatures out without justice for those innocent animals.
