Two horses at neighboring Marion County homes were found with unusual blood spots and puncture wounds, leading to the discovery of gasoline injected into their bodies, TV station WESH reported. Their devastated owners are now offering a $1,000 reward toward an arrest.

Authorities in Florida are searching for the person responsible for injecting gasoline into horses, killing one.

The sickening act was discovered earlier this month after two horses at neighboring Marion County homes were found with unusual blood spots and puncture wounds, TV station WESH reported.

A blood spot discovered June 2 on the shoulder of a horse belonging to John Hoogerhyde led to an unusual bump, which grew in size before the horse became lethargic.

The animal had to be put down, and a necropsy revealed the disturbing reason why.

“(The person who performed the necropsy) said there’s so much gasoline, it smelled like someone had poured a five-gallon can of gasoline on her,” Hoogerhyde told WESH.

    I keep my front gate locked and bring my two rescues into the back at night. The back has limited access. But this occurred in the same county in which I live.

    I heard about this yesterday and immediately forwarded it to two people I know who have horses in Florida.

    This is evil. This isn’t some satanic ritual that the barbarians in South FL do. This was intentional. Whether it was to revenge on the human or the horse it’s evil.

    If they catch the scumbag/s who did this–I say let’s light ’em in return! At the least we need to inject gasoline in them.
