Unknown Suspect(s) Intentionally Shot Horse Grazing in a Pasture

June 4, 2019

 

On the evening of Sunday, June 3, 2019, Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to 32657 SW Reidweg Road in unincorporated Washington County, south of Cornelius to investigate a report of a horse who had been shot. When deputies arrived, they located Jasper, a 9-year-old horse, and confirmed he had been shot twice.

Deputies were able to determine Jasper had been shot once in the face, near the right side of his jaw, and once in his left thigh. Jasper was out in a pasture when he was shot.

Jasper is currently in the care of a local veterinarian and will undergo surgery to attempt to remove the bullets. Jasper is expected to survive.

Several bullet casings were found on the roadside, near the pasture where Jasper was grazing.

Based on the evidence at the scene, deputies believe the individual(s) who shot Jasper did so intentionally.

If you have information on the individual(s) who shot Jasper, please call the Washington County Sheriff’s Office at 503-846-2700.
