Amish buggy horse killed in drive-by shooting in Pennsylvania
#1
PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - A horse pulling a buggy with an Amish family aboard in rural Pennsylvania was struck by a bullet fired from a moving car and later died, police said on Tuesday.

No people were injured in the drive-by shooting, which occurred on Sunday in the village of Ronks in the heart of Lancaster County's Amish country, said Lieutenant Robin Weaver of the East Lampeter Township Police Department.

The buggy was about a mile from home when the two adults and three children aboard heard a loud crack, police said.

"At the time, they believed it was a firecracker," Weaver said. "They didn't realize it was a gunshot." http://ca.news.yahoo.com/amish-buggy-hor...41682.html

This is amazing in that the horse didn't bolt and actually got the buggy and passengers home safe.

Amish horses have tough lives; one suspects that the horse was "put down" prior to the vet's arrival in order to avoid having to pay the bill.
