GRENADA, Miss. (WTVA) -- An animal protection organization is looking for information after a rescue horse was wounded in a drive-by shooting.
In Defense of Animals is offering a $2,500 reward for the information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person who shot Everette, a rescue horse at Hope Animal Sanctuary.
Doll Stanley, director of Hope Animal Sanctuary, says Everette was shot in his nose on the right side of his face.
Dr. Tom Abernethy of Veterinary Associates of Grenada confirmed Everette was most likely shot from the nearby roadway with a .22 caliber rifle.
Though Everette is in stable condition, Abernethy was not able to remove the bullet, which could cause future complications.
Everette was rescued by Hope Animal Sanctuary in 2006. He was found chained to a tractor tire. He suffered from starvation and was blind in his left eye due to abuse.
Anyone with information in Everette's case is urged to contact Hope Animal Sanctuary at 662-809-4483 or 415-448-0078.
Stanley says all calls will be strictly confidential.
