    Angry UK - Killing, mutilation of horses reported in Wales and Cornwall

    WTH is wrong with people? This sickens me so much. Horses killed, eyes gouged out, many more nasty injuries. This just breaks my heart and has been going on for years, why? Does anyone have any answers?

    Those aren't people they are monsters - lock them all up and throw away the key!

    This carp breaks my heart too can't handle it! It's SO not right.

    What happens to a person to make them so dark and twist? Are they just born that way?

    I don't think we'll ever know the answers horsie.
    Don't believe EVERYTHING you think.

    Poor Barney. His poor friend Fella saw this and now the owner is worrying for Fella as well. Poor guy is grieving and saw horrible things.

    Who the h*** does something like that?


    More about Fella. May he be safe.

    I love horses and have had the privilege of keeping them myself, whenever I did my daily checks on them before I saw them I was always afraid of something like this happening.
    I don't know whether it is an English thing but this type of horse mutilation has been happening for as long as I can remember.
    It happened near to where I live a few years back, skewbald pony, a mare was found to have been sexually abused and had internal injuries which cost a small fortune in vets bills

    Yes, Equus, a great film/play with Richard Burton if I remember correctly

    Based on a true case, from Wiki

    "Shaffer was inspired to write Equus when he heard of a crime involving a 17-year-old who blinded six horses in a small town near Suffolk.[2] He set out to construct a fictional account of what might have caused the incident, without knowing any of the details of the crime. The play's action is something of a detective story, involving the attempts of the child psychiatrist, Dr. Martin Dysart, to understand the cause of the boy's actions while wrestling with his own sense of purpose."

    There's not much more that would make me instantly coil into fury as the notion of a human being deliberately blinding a horse.

    That was the basis of the play-was the boy insane and should he be cured?

    I guess if I were LE I would be looking for a few teens who had recently read the play.

    I think crimes against animals should merit the same punishment as crimes against humans. Those same sickos are going to eventually (if they haven't already) hurt, torture, and/or kill innocent humans too.

    Forum: Jury Room
    Thread: Most interesting classic unsolved murder cases

    This thread currently has over 350 cases with a brief synopsis of each and we are still adding additional cases.

    You can access a spreadsheet that lists the cases in alphabetical order with the page & post number so that you can locate a particular case you may be interested in. It also contains links to any cases that already have a thread on WS.

    Many cases do not have a thread. Please feel free to start one in the appropriate forum if you would like to look into one. Should you start a thread on one of these cases, please let me know so that I can add the link to the spreadsheet.

    Here is the link for the spreadsheet in alphabetical order:
