Long story short........I live on 50 rural acres. Everyone knows I give 1 WARNING ONLY about nuisance pets on my property. Well the lady who has a horse on 1 acre up the road feels she can ride on everyone else's land because she lives in the country. I have told her on many occasions to stay off my fenced property. She believes she is entitled to ride anywhere as long as she sticks to the fence line. Well today I found her horse, not saddled in my vegetable patch enjoying a salad. So I dispatched it with my shotgun humanely. About an hour later the cops show up. They know me very well, due to another neighbours dogs continuely harassing my chickens. 1st COP..."Was the horse going after your chickens?" LCRT...."NO, It was eating my vegetables" 2nd COP..."Then why did you shoot it?" LCRT..."Cause it was on my property, & I've advised the owner to stay off it, & posted the NO TRESPASSING signs like I was told by the POLICE" The cop's took my statement & left. Shortly after that, the lady's hubby shows up & tells me I'm going to be charged with animal cruelty & they are going to sue me. My question is, don't you think the cop's would have done that if they thought I had commited a crime? I'm wondering if any others out there have dispatched a horse on there property, & had any legal problems.
