In Iron Mountain, Michigan, a 19-year-old man has been accused of shooting two horses, after admitting to authorities he had been playing the video game “American Sniper” before going outdoors to shoot the animals in a real life video game. According to the Iron Mountain Daily News, Luke Endjamin Wool, allegedly told authorities he shot a draft horse on February 24 and then shot and injured the second horse on March 16. The investigation from the March 16 incident tied the first horse’s death to Wool; that horse died as a result of severing a main artery after breaking its leg.

Wool told police he shot the second horse because it “laughed” at him and “draft horses are supposed to be in pairs.”

On Monday, Wool was arraigned in Iron County Trial Court. The owner of the horses, Chuck Battan stated the surviving horse had been in surgery to remove bullets from his flank quarter. The family have been horse owners for the past 42 years and have never had an incident of anyone shooting their animals. The 2,500-pound male horses performed in horse-pulling competitions and some farm work.

Wool lived rent free with his pastor and when they were out of town, Wool figured out how to get five guns and ammunition out of the safe.

If convicted on all counts, Wool faces the maximum of 18 years in prison for the discharge of a firearm in or at a building, a ten-year felony, and two counts of killing or torturing animals, each a four-year felony.  He is currently being held in jail pending a $10,000 bond.

    Are you kidding me? Playing a real live video game? He needs to be locked away for the rest of his life! He killed one horse and injured another! If I was the owner of those horses he wouldn’t have made it into custody! I have horses and there is no way in hell I would allow the little psycho to walk away!

    So, the pastor was letting him live there – rent-free. This monster then BREAKS into a safe and steals guns and ammo from it, and then shoots TWO horses? One horse is dead. The other likely having a huge vet bill for the surgery to remove the bullets. Not only should this non-human monster have to serve the entire 18 years in prison, but he should be responsible for the vet bill and for at least the cost of getting another horse for the one who died. I’m sure there were expenses with the disposal of that horse, too. This monster was given charity and he responds like this? Lock him away and throw away the key!

    He deserves to get all 18 years plus whatever else happens to him while he’s locked away. The best thing for all concerned would be if he never walks out of that prison.

    I take it he doesn’t have any sense of real and fantasy? Funny how this POS is being called a MAN and the 19 year old woman who beat the dog with a frying pan was a TEEN! They need to put this Psycho away for good, he is a menace, “The horse laughed” at him? Let see how much “laughing” he does in prison!

    Excuse Me, Maybe I want to become a serial killer and you can be my first victim. I hope they hang his ass and he never sees 20

    “If convicted”??? That little BASTARD has confessed!

    So – firing a gun “near” a building will get you TEN years, but the deliberate, calculated torture and slaughter of a sentient being only merit FOUR???

    WTF is WRONG with these idiot-jurists/lawmakers in Michigan???

    What a dumb Fuck. I hope the little bastard goes to Prison and gets laughed at in there. Stupid little asshole.

    This punk SHOULD be in prison for the full 18 years – and his fellow inmates can have their ‘fun’ with his lily white ass – he deserves to be their ‘bitch’. That would be proper punishment.
