The Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the apparent intentional shooting of a horse on County Road 253.

According to the horse’s owner, Dennis Bullard, the pony was shot from the road and then ran back to her barn where she died.

“I don’t know why anyone would kill an innocent, defenseless animal,” Bullard said on his Facebook page. “I want to find this person or persons and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.”

Bullard said his pony Sadie “one of the sweetest and loved people.” He said finding Sadie dead in the barn was a “terrible sight to see” and one he’ll never forget. He believes Sadie was down by the fence where she would often go to greet people, giving her killer an easy shot.

Alan Wilburn, chief investigator with the sheriff’s department, said deputies responded to 78 CR 254 on Jan. 16 where they discovered the pony dead in the barn.

Wilburn said there were no suspects as of Tuesday morning; however, the investigation is still open.

Bullard posted to his Facebook page offering a $1,000 reward for the information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for killing his pony.

Anyone with information should contact LCSD at 662-234-6421.
