A miniature pony that was sexually assaulted at the Equestrian Center last week will need emergency surgery after her condition deteriorated Sunday night.
Jessica McTaggart Giuzio, with the Equestrian Center, said in an email Monday, “Pebbles took a turn for the worse overnight and we are flying in the vet from the USA to do emergency surgery tomorrow.”
Police said they are still investigating the Thursday night assault on the horse and an incident from August when two full-size ponies were sexually assaulted with a foreign object.
One of those horses, Charm, died from her injuries.
Police spokeswoman Jacqueline Carpenter said Monday, “We really need some community assistance on this case.” She asked for any tips “no matter how small” that could help solve the cases. Anyone with information can call the George Town police station or make an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 800-8477.
The Equestrian Center is offering a $15,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
