Crime Stoppers of Grey Bruce and the West Grey Police Service, in conjunction with the Ministry of Natural Resources, is asking for the public's help in solving the following fatal shooting of a horse.
The incident occurred on November 6, 2010 on a farm on Concession Road 14 in Glenelg Township. The owner of the farm had turned her horses out to pasture at 6:00 p.m. on November 5th and when she checked on them at 7:30 a.m. on November 6th she discovered her 7 year old Haflinger mare was dead and had apparently been shot. An examination revealed the horse had indeed been shot, probably by a high powered rifle sometime during the night. The time span between when the horse was turned out and found is outside legal shooting hours and indicates that whoever shot the animal was probably poaching.
