(Ronks) -- Police in Lancaster County say a horse pulling a buggy is dead after being shot by someone in a passing vehicle. 

Five people were inside the buggy when the shooting occurred last night in Ronks. 

The car didn't stop after what sounded like a firecracker, and the horse was discovered to be injured when the buggy arrived at a farm about a mile away.  It died before a veterinarian could arrive.  

The horse suffered a bullet wound to the left side of its chest.

    I grew up on Parker Ranch on Hawai`i Island...my Grandfather was the very 1st veterinarian on my Island...I was raised in the ranching trade. With this being said...this incident should be a priority investigation for the police in Lancaster County. The perpetrators need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
