This is sick. A family discovered that their horse was shot by a hunter. The hunter claimed to have mistaken the horse for a deer, he is age 83. Tracii Kunish-Chandler from Benzie County mention that their horse ran away because it was spooked, and they began the usual tracking and got word that the horse was down, “I heard a gunshot at like 6:45 p.m., which I didn’t think anything of it. I thought maybe a hunter finally found a deer and had to put it out of its misery or something.”
Kodi was a rescue horse and family pet, “The second day I got her I had her up here in the pasture, a saddle on her and my 1 1/2-year-old nieces were both on her, my nephews were on her riding around.” Because of the size and color of Kodi, mistaking the horse for a deer is in question. It is being investigated and charges may be issued soon. Story from Up North Live.
