TOLLESON, AZ - A Tolleson family wants justice after they say someone shot their horse in the head.
It happened last Sunday night. The family said they heard a gunshot, but didn’t think anything of it. When the family came outside the next morning, they found their horse Blanco with a gunshot wound to the head.
“I was so sad, I just couldn’t believe it,” said Javier Nava, owns the horse. “When the vet told me that they might have to put it down, I just started to cry.”
Nava said the bullet went through Blanco’s head and is still lodged in his shoulder. Blanco is expected to be okay. He may have lost the use of his left eye.
Police found a bullet casing a few feet away from Blanco’s stall. Footprints were found leading out to the road.
If you have any information, please call police.
