San Joaquin County Sheriff's deputies are investigating a rather unnerving crime — a horse that was brutally killed.

A woman who lives on Atkins Road between Lockeford and Clements said she found the young thoroughbred stallion early Monday morning tied to a vine in a vineyard, with his throat slit and tail cut off. The owner of the property where the horse was found doesn't live in the area, she said.

    Tool inventories and geographical location relative to other inhabited structures seems to be off limits in LNSland.

    Bob, strange thing, is after all the media attention and public awareness, the horse was removed late in the evening, looked to be picked up by a fork lift or a piece of equipment. I am going to to some investigating today to confirm that it was picked up through animal control, as a rancher myself, when an animal dies or is euthanized, the tallow company that removes these animals work normal business hours between 9-5 and seems very suspicious that he was removed nearly 10 pm at night, could it be the person that dumped him there taking the evidence?

    We have never seen an animal so badly tortured as the one that was dumped here on the street. We are going to continue to be the voice for this beautiful animal that was so brutally tortured. Anyone that knows anything or has any information or leads please come forward and report this to Les Garcia with the SO, we have already collected some leads and are working today on forming a group to pitch in on reward money offered for the information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for such a horrific act.

    When they catch the perpetrator, he or she should be treated exactly as the horse was
    . If anyone has a problem with that, too bad.
