• Shetland pony shot in Bolivar; Police investigating

    Updated:

    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.
