    Hope the driver is charged IF they were speeding. They can read the information from the car's back box to find out.

    Hey nuts how bout we get together tomorrow at noon on Milton near the scene of the murder and have a memorial service for the horse then we can sing a verse or two of cumbya and then everyone can hug a few trees. AND BY THE WAY , is anyone concerned about the driver of the vehicle that was taken to the hospital ?

    Desiderata,

    I see what you're saying, but there are a lot of good, caring people out there. Remember, there will always be some bad Cheerios or apples, no matter where you go.

    While I too, prefer the company of my dogs, I try to remind myself that there are more good people out there, than bad.

    :-)

    After reading some of these posts, it confirms my opinion, MOST PEOPLE ARE CRUEL AND MEAN, WORTHLESS CREATURES ! I prefer the company of animals , they do not care about insurance policies, who has how much money, what color your skin is, what car/truck you drive, how big your house is , or a number of disgusting habits that humans indulge in!

    NC Horse Council offers insurance for ~$30/year for situations like this.

    Unless the owner was cited by authorities as being negligent and the horse has a history of getting out, the auto owner/driver might as well have hit a deer. "I sure hope the horse owner's home insurance policy was paid up to date"

    Perhaps. With a deer you don't get an owner's name and address and lawyers are in the business of litigation.

    Sorry ya'll but the horse was the innocent victim. Why do people have such a low regard for animals.
    Yes I am an animal lover and proud of it. We eventually come to realize that we need them more than they need us.

    I sure hope the horse owner's home owner insurance policy was paid up to date.

    It may have been the horse that stabbed the other horses in Zebulon, on the run from the law.

  • Bartmeister Dec 4, 3:09 p.m.

    The car did fare too well in this either.
