Helpless horse tied and dragged behind white truck

In San Leon, Texas, a video of horse tied and being dragged behind a white pickup truck has gone viral. The Galveston County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help identifying the person(s) involved in the apparent animal cruelty.

According to AbcNews, the video appeared on social media Monday afternoon and outraged the community. Deputies suspect the culprits might be local teens. Authorities have spoken to a juvenile who allegedly recorded the disturbing event, however the driver of the truck has not been identified.

“It’s something the sheriff’s office doesn’t tolerate, and we’re exhausting all efforts to find out who the culprit is at this time,” Galveston County Sheriff’s Office, Sgt. Michael Roy stated.

It is not known if the horse was injured.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call sheriff deputies at (409) 763-8477 or (409) 766 – 2322 extension 2.

    Arrest the person who took the photos he deserves to be processed as well…let him stay in jail until he tells police who did this horrible act!
    Then drag them both off to the court house behind a truck.
    They are future murderers, anyway!

    WHEN HE IS FOUND, BEFORE YOU LOCK HIM UP, TRY DRAGGING HIM BEHIND A HORSE, AT A PACE THAT WILL CUSE PAIN, AND SKIN LOSS, BUT NOT DEATH. HOW FAR WAS THAT HORSE DRAGGED? DRAG HIM FOR THE SAME DISTANCE, THEN ASK HIM HOW HE ENJOYED THE TRIP, WHILE HW IS IN THE HOSPITAL BED, CUFFED TO THE RAIL.
