Dogs, bobcats, goats and a miniature horse… oh my.

A twice-attacked miniature horse discovered over the weekend at a residence in El Dorado sparked accusations among neighbors that either loosened dogs or bobcats may have been responsible for the death.

After receiving notice of the horse’s untimely death, a deputy was dispatched to a residence in the 200 block of Amason Road where the complainant advised when his mother came out to feed the animal at 6:30 a.m. on Saturday she found it dead in the pasture. Injuries were noted to the horse’s neck and legs.

He reported that a month ago his sister was forced to fend off an attack by a large bull dog in which the horse sustained injuries to its legs, according to the Union County Sheriff’s Office report.

Residents nearby reported hearing dogs barking around 10:30 p.m. the night before and that two bobcats, which belonged to another neighbor, got loose several months ago and killed a number of goats in the area.

The owner of the white bull dog allegedly responsible for the attack was given a copy of the city’s animal ordinance and reminded to keep her animals penned.

    Why would a person who lives in out in the county care what the city ordinance has to say?
