HORSE ATTACK - Horse shot 9 times in Tollhouse recovering, owner says

HORSE ATTACK - Horse shot 9 times in Tollhouse recovering, owner says

14 July 2019


FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Sunshine came home with a pretty dramatic story for her owner, Lisa.

"She's my heart horse. She's my horse soulmate," Lisa said. 

Her heart nearly broke on July 2. 2019.

Fresno County sheriff's dispatchers called and told her they found her horse dead from gunshots in the same incident where a deputy got shot.

It took her several hours to find out the death notice was premature.

After sheriff's deputies cleared out an injured deputy and arrested the suspected shooter, a neighbor saw Sunshine standing up.

The sheriff's office brought a horse trailer to haul away Sunshine and some other animals, so Lisa is deeply grateful to the deputy who saved her horse.

A week later, she went home wearing several acupressure patches to help with healing and pain control, but otherwise mostly back to normal.
