5 Horses Shot and Killed, Along With 3 Injured, Deserve Justice

Target: Appomattox County, Commonwealth’s Attorney Leslie M. Fleet
Goal: Seek maximum punishment for person accused of shooting 8 horses.

Shots rang out from the stable, but by the time the owners arrived, five horses lay dead and three more lay injured from gun shot wounds.

The scene of this bloodbath is in the Spout Springs area of Appomattox County, Virginia. Veterinarians were rushed to the property to save the three wounded horses. When deputies from the Appomattox Sheriff’s Office arrived, they began an investigation.

After a full forensics investigation, detectives identified a juvenile suspect, who was soon arrested and taken into custody. Neither the owner of the horses, nor the name of the juvenile suspect have been released.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Commonwealth’s Attorney Fleet,

A massacre of horses has occurred in your jurisdiction. A juvenile stands accused of shooting eight horses in a stable. Five are dead and three are wounded.

The scene of this bloodbath is in the Spout Springs area of Appomattox County, Virginia. Veterinarians were rushed to the property to save the three wounded horses. When deputies from the Appomattox Sheriff’s Office arrived, they began an investigation.

After a full forensics investigation, detectives identified a juvenile suspect, who was soon arrested and taken into custody. Neither the owner of the horses, nor the name of the juvenile suspect have been released.

Crimes against animals are to be taken seriously, so we ask that your office prosecute this alleged crime to its fullest extent.

Sincerely,
[Your Name Here]

  1. This kid is depraved, he does something like this as a kid and it will escalate to murder as an adult. Charge him as an adult and send him to a youth facility until he can be sent to prison, where he belongs and where he can’t kill more animals or move on to people. This is just sickening.

  2. Where does a juvenile get a gun? Where are the parents? Why id this happen? To have a young person with this such hate is overwhelmingly horrendous. To want to cause pain and death to those in stalls who can not even run away is beyond reason. This is a mentally ill young person who needs serious help. Society can not support all these criminals. But society also can not have this type of troubled person on the streets.
