BOLIVAR, Pa. —
State police are investigating after someone shot a family’s pet Shetland pony in the neck with a high-powered rifle on Tuesday in Fairfield Township.
Police said in a release that the shooting happened Tuesday between noon and 3 p.m. on a property about 50 miles east of Pittsburgh.
“It’s a crime to begin with, let alone to kill a pony, someone’s pet to this family, it’s bad,” said Trooper Steve Limani.
The pony, owned by Lisa Adams, of Bolivar, had to be put down by a vet after the shooting.
Family members were too upset to do an interview, but did say they do not believe it was a hunter who was shooting that far away.
There have been no arrests and police are asking anyone with information to call them.
