Make a joke out of it, but not even funny[jerks].
The man sounds like he needs to go back to the pen or horse whipped, the horse didnt deserve that.

This really is not a joke, some people are just to heartless and have to make jokes out of everything. I hope they give this man what he deserves. they need to let someone take his butt to the pasture and horse whip him. And someone with charges from the past, and they thought he would of changed. Yeah right, give him what he deserves.

And no, teacher, I know cruelty to animals is NOT funny. It's just that the skewed priorities of some people make it hard not to laugh at their responses. By all means, this defective piece of crap needs to be put back in his natural habitat (prison) for as long as possible.

It would be cheaper to shoot him, than put him back in jail.

just another looser, that the system should have not let have a gun.. Some things on gun control should be such as convicted felons having weapons.. not a bright idea.. but then maybe he skirted the law in such who knows..

but yes he is a piece of scum, and is an idiot.. give him another ten years in the pen to think about his stupidity.. in the mean time tax the heck out of his property, some body egg his house, and when he gets out he will have nothing and some one can put a nice little message for him on his possibly lost property..looser you lost what little you had because you were mean and an idiot.

There is no excuse for any mistreatment of any animal most respond to a kind hand. For this act in such a manner has no cognive power at all and should be put away for as long as the law alouse. So people don't understand that guns and alcohol don't mix.

It seems that this individual needs help in more ways than one. Probably most of his troubles in life can be blamed on booze. If the bad guys want weapons they'll have them. So much for gun control.

This guy is in a lot of trouble. Alcohol, drugs, guns and stupidity.

What a losing combination. Killing the horse is the least of his worries now. We are going to be feeding him for a long time.

A convicted felon had a gun? A peaceful, responsible citizen like me who has never violated the law would undergo extensive screenings before I can be allowed to purchase a gun. How did he get his gun? Not from a gun store, is it? If not, why was he not charged with gun possession?
