Ohio man accused of cutting off his horse’s leg

The Morrow County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help finding a Fredericktown, Ohio man accused of cutting off one of his horse’s legs. According to Local12News, authorities are searching for Mark Hill, and although what happened at the farm continues to be under investigation, Sheriff John Hinton states one of Hill’s horses recently broke a leg. Instead of ordering a barn call for a veterinarian to come out to his farm to examine the horse, Hill has been accused of using a saw to amputate the horse’s leg.

A warrant for Hill’s arrest has been issued – citing a second degree misdemeanor charge for animal cruelty. Horses are not considered companion animals in Ohio and are labeled livestock. If found guilty, Hill could face a maximum of six-months in jail.

The Morrow County Humane Society were called out and humanely euthanized the horse. Anyone with information is asked to  call the Morrow County Sheriff’s Office at 419-946-4444. For updated information, follow the organization on their Facebook page.

    This sick bastard needs all his limbs cut off with a chain saw. The suffering this horse went through because the POS wouldn’t call a vet and all he gets is 6 months in jail. Big fucking deal. If a human had their leg cut off know they would get more. Look at all the comments on here mentioning what kind of punishment he should get and they are correct. What the hell is the matter with these screwed up laws for animals. I would love to find this scumbag and torture him. Animal abusers are sick Motherfuckers and hope they all rot and die now.

    Ok I live in Ohio and animal cruelty is now a FELONY! How in the hell can horses not be included in this law? In my opinion horses are brutalized and neglected as much as companion animals! Texas has tons of case of horses being abused and neglected! Guess this is a law that needs to be amended! Just like dogs and cats,how can anyone hurt a horse? They are so magnificent and beautiful! I would consider them companion animals,thousands upon thousands of people consider them pets,pets that are comforting and lovey! This is one sick and demented monster! So wrong to not charge him with a felony!!
