You know I wouldnt be so soon to jump to a conclusion that a person has done this. I watched something on Discovery channel once that had weird cases like this. I am trying to think what was doing it, but it was not human. If I think of it I will post another blog.

I hope whoever did this sick thing is caught--they must be really dangerous weirdos. Too bad the same thing can't be done to them as punishment. Anyone who'd do this should be locked up at the least, because if they would do this to an animal, they can't be trusted around human beings either. How sad for the Franks. What are the children supposed to think? And if the police and animal control are so lackadaisical about so much as coming to meet with Marilyn Frank about this crime, are animal owners on the reservation just supposed to sit around while their animals are killed by whatever sick puke is doing these things? If it was my horse, I would want to return every day to check my other animals--& see how the butchers like being shot at if I catch them there.

Don't lose any sleep waiting for the Tribe to investigate this. 2 incidents and we are still waiting for an 'investigation'. Sorry for your loss.

Yup, I've read about this being done; many cases, many places. Aliens? Bigfoot? What are the police to do when unexplainable things happen to animals? Read "Hunt for the Skinwalker: Science Confronts the Unexplained at a Remote Ranch in Utah" it talks about why these mutilations are unexplainable.

Even if you don't believe have or 90% of the stories, some few are definitely unexplained.

Franks, I am sorry for your loss.

I'm sorry too. I'd also agree that you'd be better off standing guard with a 30/30, but wait a couple of weeks, because with the heat on, the criminal(s) will most likely lay low for a while.

In my psychology textbook, it said something about people who mutilate animals when they are younger as fitting the future serial killer profile. I'd check around Nageezi with my neighbors to see if they've lost any cats or dogs.

It's a small, isolated community and I'll bet they could pinpoint the twisted soul if they tried.

Contact your US Senators or Congressman and have
them put pressure on the Navajo Police to start
doing their job.

Sheesh...the Navajo Police...hahahahahahahaha! What do they do? Give tickets? They came out to investigate a break-in at my in-laws. Didn't dust for fingerprints, barely looked around. They found a footprint under the broken window used to enter the hous and were going to take a picture; but, they forgot their camera. So, oh well, that was the end of it.

Goodluck Franks. That really is weird and horrible!!!

Our politicians are as unresponsive as the Navajo Police--cant get them to do their jobs either. NNPD always uses the excuse of being short handed, but they dont seem to make any headway ro remedy that situation either!! I think the 30-30 solution is better

Such is life on the Rez. The Rez Police wont even go to the scene let alone investigate anything.
Get used to it, it is only going to get worse.
Lets waste more money trying to sue Farmington instead of taking care of our own people.

This is funny - typical of the Nav Nation police.

Hey be-yoch, look what you started! They were referred to the Navajo Nation Animal Control unit. So quit bashing on the Navajo Police Department! You and your STUPID comments! Sheesh...@#$%^#%&^%

I dam sure wouldn't want to respond to anything if I was in their shoes.
They are by themself and back up is in Tuba City, Flagstaff or Page.
What happens if a drunk wife beater comes after them with a bat? That would be a loose loose problem and even worse if they are a white officer.
Nope sorry, not me, I'm busy.

What a sick sick thing to do.

I hope they find whoever, or whatever did this.

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers!

Oh, puhleeeze! A healthy horse is going to stand quietly and let itself be disemboweled by what -- little green men? Genetically engineered primates? Some mythical beast? Killer Easter Bunnies? Does anyone believe a scrawny coyote is going to take down a horse? We’d be finding one seriously kicked and stomped coyote carcass if that were the case. Unlike wolves, coyotes are not that effective at pack take-downs of large animals.
The more reasonable explanations (remember Occam’s Razor) is that a friendly family horse saw a person or group of persons, got curious, thought they might have food, trotted up to check them out and BAM! The Chaco Canyon area attracts some seriously weird people and not all of them are locals. Anyone remember the Harmonic Convergence folks? Eeeew!
Agreed that the Nation’s police force makes the Keystone Kops look good. The Tribe choses to spend its $$ elsewhere. Where can we send contributions to a reward fund? At the very least, we can take up a collection to buy the Franks a box of bullets, since they are supposedly scarce.(Sounds like all our cops are going to be down to one bullet, like Deputy Barney Fife.)

The horse had a baton and would not "sit like a good boy".

What I started? lol Yes, I know they referenced the Animal Control unit....to what? Pick up the dead horse? I'm not aware of Animal Control investigating crimes like this. The article also mentioned the police were called. Why didn't they come? Why haven't they started an investigation? Cause they are inept. I don't really think it's their fault. I can only imagine the training they get. BTW, by the number of dead dogs that lay on roads, until they literally decompose and blow away, I would say the animal control unit is, also, inept. Although, I will consider that it could be understaffed. I've heard it both ways.
