    our cops here in Oregon don't usually shoot unarmed people so I guess they will shoot an unarmed horse.

    An Oregon family is demanding answers after a Sheriff’s deputy shot and killed their pony. The family says they had no idea the officer was going to shoot the family pet, and it all happened without their knowing and for no good reason whatsoever.

    Crista Fitzgerald of Clackamas County explained that the 30-year-old American Miniature Horse, named Gir, had no problems aside from being old. But when he escaped from his stall in a Molalla barn overnight on February 18th, an officer shot and killed him.

    “I locked his stall door, and I always do a double check. The next morning I came back out before I had class in the morning, which is around 10, and he was gone,” Crista explained.

    She said that Gir didn’t get very far from the barn before being shot.

    “We started knocking door-to-door. And the first house we came to he was laying in their yard,” she recounted.

    At first the family thought that Gir was taking a nap. But as they got closer to him, they saw that he had been shot multiple times.

    Let me guess.. Mr. Ed was gaiting while black and packing heat with no CCW permit. :rolleyes:

    Seriously, this is truly sad, and a well-deserved lawsuit is warranted. But telling their children how they can't see the pony anymore.. that's what will hurt the most.

    The kids can see the pet horse all they want if the parents hire a good taxidermist.

    Pig shoots horse. Welcome to the United States of Animal Farm.

    I noticed a lot of stories where pigs shoot pets lately. Seems like they don't like the competition.

    They also don't seem to like fat, black people, old people, homeless people, brown people taking a walk or children handling toy guns.

    "Pig" is a gross and unacceptable term.

    I hope you'll consider not using it.

    It’s also like any other similar term to describe people in a diminutive way, a totally harmful term to describe people that who do not engage in terrible behavior like that. When people start throwing those terms around all cops (or whatever group the term gets applied to) starts worrying who is really on their side or if people are just going to lash out at them.

    I hope that in this instance, the police take swift action so that the population doesn’t think that their force is made up of people who kill animals that are of no threat to anyone. The police are supposed to be our allies, not the bullies and I fervently believe that most cops out there are just that.

    Especially horses for the most part about as safe a animal when nothing frightened.

    The policeman thought the pony was pointing a weapon on him or is rapid. :rolleyes:;)

    Do you know the meaning of the word naive?

    You also have to blame the idiot who called the pigs because a pony is sitting in his backyard.

    It can't have been the first time. Assuming some minimum level of competence, the person who took the call should have referred it to whatever local animal control rather than a police deputy. Even if the guy wasn't a bonehead, it's unlikely that he would know how to safely capture the animal. If the neighbor called the cops, they may not have known who owned it. They still called the wrong people, but the cops should have forwarded this one.

    Curiously, I have seen a situation where a couple of known very dangerous dogs got loose, and, the police were called. The police actually tried to capture the dogs. When they failed, they called animal control, just as you say, which captured them.

    In this case, should the caller have expected the police to shoot something whenever they are called? If so, that is a pretty sorry state of affairs, isn't it? In the past, it was not that way.

    The horse was trespassing, it ignored legal orders from the police to raise its hooves above its head and resisted arrest.

    This is clearly justifiable.
