“When the Fitzgeralds’ beloved, 30-year-old pony, an American Miniature Horse, wandered out of its barn back on February 18, he made it just 150 yards down the road into a neighbor’s yard when the animal decided to lie down and rest for a while. When the neighbor called police, a sheriff’s deputy showed up and tried to get the pony named Gir to stand up.
But Gir, described as a stubborn little horse by the Fitzgeralds, didn’t feel like getting up. So the officer shot Gir twice, killing the family pet.”
Wow! That is harsh. 30 Yrs. old.
What a hero.
At least he made it home safe that day.
