Police in the heart of Pennsylvania’s Amish country say a horse pulling a buggy has been killed in a drive-by shooting.
WHTM-TV reports five people were inside the buggy Sunday night when a car drove by and a shot was fired in Ronks, in southeastern Lancaster County.
Police say the car didn’t stop after what sounded like a firecracker.
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.
Look, I’m one of those guys who doesn’t get the Amish. I LIKE technology, modern medicine, and conveniences. Still if they honestly feel reward and spiritual unity from living the simple life, who am I to be bothered?
Still WHY would somebody shoot at an Amish buggy? Is this some board teens causing mayhem that killed a horse? Is this some Gang Bangers looking to score and easy kill?
No matter what, it doesn’t make sense to me. I know the Amish don’t read my blog (duh), but my heart goes out to them, and I hope the cops find these assholes, and the justice system doesn’t go easy on them!
