Man Kills Horse With Axe
Wolfe County, Kentucky – A 72-year-old man, Carl Miller, spent the night in jail after killing his horse with an axe. He was angry at the horse because it kept breaking through the fence onto his neighbor’s property, and he did not want any further damage to the fence. Miller allegedly killed the miniature horse by splitting it’s head open with his axe because he did not own a gun. “I see both sides,” Miller’s adult daughter, Starr Campbell, explained to reporters. “I don’t condone what he did. I don’t like what he did. But he’s just from that generation where that’s what they did when they didn’t see anything fit, they got rid of it.”
Miller is charged with second degree animal cruelty, and is due in court on August 19.
