The reward for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons who killed a blind Mercer County pony has been increased to $1,500, thanks to donations from the public.
Sandi Drabick, executive director for the Humane Society of Mercer County Inc., said the shelter's voice mailbox has been filled with messages from people who want to donate. The shelter, which operates solely on donations, had put up a $500 reward.
The mangled body of 10-year-old Kahlua was found by his owner, Tory Morgan, on Wednesday. She and Renee Dorogy, the shelter's humane officer, said there were tire tracks in the pony's pasture that appeared to be made by an ATV.
Ms. Dorogy and Ms. Morgan think Kahlua was knocked down by a vehicle and then roped and dragged.
People with information about the pony's death can call the shelter at 724-981-5445.
Donations can be mailed to Humane Society of Mercer County, Reward Fund, P.O. Box 1046, Hermitage, PA 16148.
