GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Authorities in northern Alabama are investigating a family’s report that someone shot its pet miniature horse.

WHNT-TV reports (https://bit.ly/TOe14l ) Jason Hudgins found the horse that lived in the pasture in front of his Marshall County home suffering from two gunshot wounds over the weekend. Hudgins says the shots didn’t kill his children’s pet, so he had to get his own gun to end its suffering.

The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the shooting.

Hudgins says it’s possible a passerby shot the horse after mistaking it for a deer. But he says he still wants to find out who’s responsible and “let them explain to my 3-year-old son why I had to shoot his horse.”
