‘The dog hunted down the horse’: Pit bull-mix dog allegedly attacks show horse | MLive.com

 

Kim Boyer was devastated to find her retired mare, Candela, allegedly attacked by her neighbor’s dog Thursday, June 19, and she said she believes the dog very purposefully sought out the weaker of the horses at her Fruitport farm.

The horse attack was reported to the Fruitport Township Police Department around 4:20 p.m. on Thursday, June 19. The dog, a pit bull-boxer mix, allegedly ran out of its owner’s house and over to Boyer’s Hampton Green Farm, 5440 Farr Rd., where it located the mare, Candela, in her stall.

Boyer raises Spanish show horses on the property where she has more than 40 horses and a number of other animals on the property. She said she hopes the dog owner, who has been “very cooperative” with Boyer and the police department, decides to put the “dangerous” dog down.

The attack on Candela was particularly vicious because the horse had no where to run when the dog sought the horse out in one of the barns, Boyer said.

“The dog hunted down the horse. She went for the oldest, weakest of the horses and I think it’s a very dangerous thing,” Boyer said. “The dog has tasted the blood of an animal that is much larger than her.”
