LAKE COUNTY, Fla. — A Florida man who shot and killed a horse that got loose into his pasture won't face any charges, officials said.
According to WESH in Orlando, Natorie Borst's 6-year-old stallion Bolt got loose and wandered into a neighboring pasture.
The owner of the pasture says the horse was going after his mares, according to police. When he tried to remove Bolt, the horse reared up, kicked him on the shoulder and seemed to be preparing to trample him.
That's when the horse was shot, police said.
The man didn't need medical attention.
On Facebook, Borst has a different version of the events. She said the horse was on the side of the road eating grass with the other horses when the man got in a vehicle and chased the horse down before shooting him.
Police, however, cited Borst. Investigators told WESH that the case is closed.
