Police are seeking information about how and why at least 15 horses ended up shot to death in eastern Kentucky.

The horse massacre occurred at a strip mine near the Pike and Floyd County line, according to WYMT. The equine executioner killed indiscriminately, including horses younger than 1-year-old and pregnant mares.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Seeing them gunned down is … it’s beyond horrific,” said Tonya Conn with Dumas Rescue, an animal rescue group. “These horses were scattered in various, various places, distances from each other, so they had been shot, and they’d scattered then hunted and shot down.”

Floyd County Sheriff John Hunt called the act “very inhumane” and “cruel” conducted by “somebody who just apparently had nothing else to do or whatever just to go back on a strip job and shoot down horses who were, one of them obviously was feeding, had grass in its mouth.”

“It looked like a battlefield for just horses,” Hunt added.
