NYSP investigating spray painted horse

Walworth, N.Y. - New York State Police are investigating a horse whose mane and tail were cut, and side was spray painted in Walworth.

I could just see that and I thought it was pushed to one side, said Lisa Anne Kreger as she touched where the forelock of her horses mane was. And then I came around.

Kreger quickly discovered her four-year-old horse Dusty's mane had been cut along with his tall. There was also a sideways R spray painted on his side and on the door of his stall.

Kreger said goodnight to Dusty at 9:30 Sunday night and found him this way when she went into the barn to give him breakfast nine hours later.

Kreger believes someone did this to hurt her.

I absolutely believe 100-percent that I was targeted, said Kreger.

Kreger said Dusty is doing fine, other than the cutting of his mane and tail he was not physically hurt.

I couldn't believe what I saw, it's the nastiest thing I've ever seen anybody do, said the propertys owner, Mike Bellingham.

Nothing else in the barn was damaged, the other horse in the barn was untouched, and nothing was stolen.

I can't imagine anybody doing this while I was in the house sleeping, said Bellingham, just can't imagine it like I say this is my sanctuary.

He's [Dusty] my 40 year old dream come true, he's helped me through so much, I was diagnosed with PTSD last year and because of him I don't have nightmares anymore and somebody would do this to him, this innocent horse to get to me, said Kreger.
