Pet Pony Dragged to Death in Northern North Dakota

Posted: Updated:

BOTTINEAU, N.D. (AP) - Authorities in Bottineau County are investigating the apparent dragging death of a miniature Shetland pony taken from a hobby farm.  

Owner Dave Boppre says that on September 24, someone in a pickup truck chased the pet horse from a field, tired it out, struck it with the truck, then tied it to the back of the truck and dragged it along the road. 

Boppre is accepting donations for a reward fund. The North Dakota Stockmen's Association says it also is preparing a reward fund. 

A law passed by the Legislature earlier this year makes an act of animal cruelty a felony rather than a misdemeanor.
