    FL - Dogs and horses shot

    'Like horrible target practice'
    Beulah man returns home to find 5 dogs, 10 horses shot to death

    Five dogs and 10 horses were found shot Tuesday in Beulah, where residents are comparing the animal- cruelty incident to a horrendous round of target practice.

    Escambia County sheriff's deputies are investigating the shooting at Desmond Davis' 113-acre property near Frank Reeder and Jay roads.

    "This is a random act of senseless violence," said Sgt. Mike Ward, Sheriff's Office spokesman. "We just hope to get the suspect identified and bring them to justice."

    I hope they catch the SOB(s) responsible for this. Five English Setters were killed and the horses were used for target practice. A 7 week-old colt was killed. I'm so disgusted with the human race.

    "People" like that barely qualify as members of the human race. What is the matter with people?

    Maybe they were more of the evil secret offspring of Jackie Peterson.

    Seven of the horses are now dead. The remaining three are struggling and the young colt is paralyzed. There's an update here for anyone who's interested. There's also a video of the vet examining the colt, but I couldn't get it to load quickly enough to watch it at work. Maybe I'll try later from home.

    What a horrible world we live in. I'm sickened by the evil and inhumanity in this world. Anyone who would kill another human being, or a defenseless animal, for the sheer "pleasure" doesn't deserve to draw another breath.

    God help us.

    This may not interest anyone else, but I love dogs and horses so much that this story broke my heart! Anyone who'd kill them in cold blood for no apparent reason doesn't deserve to be free. Thank God they caught this monster.

    Anyone who could do something like that is definitely missing some brain parts. Throw away the key on this one so he can't do any more harm to animals or people.
