This is so terrible.
Two Nevada men are being sentenced to 6 months in jail for shooting wild horses.
The men who pleaded for leniency in this case, had been drinking and were looking for places to do some trapping when they came across the horses in the rangeland about 150 miles northwest of Reno.
The judge's response to their plea for probation was, "Drunken and boneheaded is not an excuse."
LOL! We like this judge!!
Assistant U.S. Attorney Sue Fahami had originally sought a year in prison for both men not only because what they did was incredibly cruel, but also due to their complete disregard for the animals after they were shot and left to die.
At least Nevada is taking this incident very seriously!
We were heartbroken to hear about this.
