Horse Hit by Car and Left to Die on Roadside Deserves Justice

Target: Satana Deberry, Durham, NC District Attorney
Goal: Find and punish the person responsible for the hit and run death of a horse.

A woman was walking her horse named Pom Pay alongside a road when she saw headlights coming right at her. The woman’s sister, who was walking behind her witnessed the horrific event in its entirety. The car never stopped even after it had plowed through the poor animal. While the horse’s owner escaped unharmed, the horse was severely injured and lay on the road suffering for hours while veterinarians responded.

Due to the speed of the impact and the darkness, the sisters were unable to get a vehicle description or license plate number. However, evidence was recovered at the scene, including a windshield wiper.

Law enforcement officials believe the driver of the car probably didn’t even know if they hit a person or an animal, as they sped away without investigating.

Once veterinarians realized that Pom Pay couldn’t be saved, she was euthanized at the scene. “It was a gruesome few hours,” the owner said, adding that she “was traumatized.”

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Deberry,

A woman was walking her horse alongside a road when a car crashed into the horse head-on and never stopped. While no vehicle description or license plate number was captured, some evidence was left at the scene, such as a windshield wiper.

The woman had received Pom Pay, a beautiful Arabian horse, as a gift from a friend seven years ago. Pom Pay, a beautiful Arabian horse, from a friend. She hadn’t owned a horse before but learned to ride with Pom Pay and quickly became a dedicated horse owner.

“When I met her, it was one of those weird things,” she said. “It was an immediate connection. I just learned as fast as I could how to take care of her.”

This is a tragic story that demands justice. Please devote all appropriate resources to finding and prosecuting the person responsible for this sick hit and run.

Sincerely,
[Your Name Here]

  1. Terribly so tragic
    Hope you get justice for your beautiful boyxx

  2. Not realizing she hit the horse?! Dumb bitch! Her ass needs to be mailed. This animal suffered a horrible death cause of her stupidity! The ppl with him could have been killed!
    God speed sweet baby

  3. Rose Coffey says:

    I am sure hoping this driver will be tracked down. My sympathy to Pom Pay’s owner in her loss. Let’s get the jerk who did this.

  4. Pamela Chattergoon says:

    Unless she was driving a tank,anyone would know they hit a horse. Probably drunk or on drugs so they wouldn’t stop for fear of getting caught.

  5. Michele Shank says:

    How the hell do you not know you hit a horse??? The impact would be similar to hitting another vehicle. That’s BS!

  6. p pucher

    How could you possibly know the driver was a woman driver–unless you were involved? The riders were both females and the horse was female. Yet you refer to the “ppl with HIM” who “could have been killed. That’s really suspicious. I’m just saying. Or maybe you just don’t like women…

  7. Michelle Stewart says:

    Whoever did this must be found and charged severly and harshly. The person must not get away with this. The person should gave a couple first degree animal cruelty felonies (fir leaving the poor horse to suffer on the side of the road). Then be charged with numerous motor vehicle charges (driving with undo care & attention, probably speeding, hit & run and maybe others). The person must be charged and spend 7 years in prison with no early parole, pay a $500,000 fine, and lose their driver’s license for 5 years.

  8. Kathy Banfield says:

    There is no way on earth you could hit a horse and not know it. I sure knew I hit something when I struck a hapless little squirrel!

  9. Sandy Menden says:

    The person (s) who did this need to pay…with their life

  10. Breaks my heart that this beautiful animal suffered and her owner must be heartbroken as well. How does someone not realize they hit a horse? This individual will be found and justice must be served.

  11. Larry Menden says:

    I’d like to see the person (s) who did this to be hit by a car and killed

  12. Percy Sullivan says:

    Oh sure, how the fuck can a driver not know that he or she hit a horse? This is not a small animal. Find the motherfucker and string the POS on a flag pole. Better yet, put a bullet through the head. R.I.P., Pom Pay.

  13. From the account, it seems as if the driver deliberately drove right at them. RIP Pom Pay. Her death was tragic and horrific. Pom Pay suffered in agony for hours before she was put to sleep. There is no way the driver did not know they hit something/someone. They need to be caught and severely punished for their callous disregard for another life. Do not listen to excuses, hitting a 1000# animal would cause a considerable amount of damage. Get body shops involved as this vehicle needs front end work.

  14. Carl Benson says:

    The driver could have been drunk, possibly. If that is the case, we have a bigger issue. Please find the monster and make him or her pay with their life for the poor horse.

  15. BULL SHIT, THIS PERSON HAD TO BE F-ING BLIND AND NOT FEELING THE IMPACT??? HIT HEADON?? JUST HOW STUPID DO THEY THINK THE GENERAL PUBLIC IS??? I ONLY HOPE THAT THEY FIND THIS PRICK, MAN OR WOMAN AND IN THE MEAN TIME, I HOPE THEY SUFFER IMMENSELY IN THEIR LIFE FOR KNOWING JUST WHAT THE HELL THEY DID. PLEASE, SOMONE FIND THIS BASTARD FOR NOT STOPPING TO HELP. MAY THIS BEAUTIFULHORSE FINALLY REST IN LOVE AND PEACE AFTER SUCH AHORRIFIC DEATH.NAS FORTHE DRIVER, MAY YOU SUFFER ALL THE WAY TO HELL, YOU EVIL BASTARD. THATIS WHERE YOU BELONG!!

  16. TRAGIC!!! Find the Bastard that did this and Punish to the Fullest extent of the law!!!

  17. There is a special place in Hell for the vicious degraded
    vile and heart dead poisoned minded psychopath who killed that poor horse and caused the animal such unimaginable suffering. Unfortunately we have to share our planet with such execrable human sewage. May they reap the KARMA of this action in full measure and SOON !! I hope the sisters win the lawsuit…

  18. This should be a felony!

  19. Why in the hell do we have to sign petitions for justice to be done for crimes?? What do we even have law enforcement or a judicial system for? Maybe vigilante justice would work better – betting there would be less crime & criminals – taxpayers wouldn’t have to support these ba$tard$ to live in prison with benefits many ‘free’ people don’t have!

  20. THIS DEMON MUST BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE AND PAY WITH THE MOST STRINGENT CHARGES! This cannot just be dropped! This kind of disregard for empathy and humanity must get what’s coming to them. So tragic!

    I am so sorry to the owners of POM PAY for all the suffering. I am sorry nothing could be done for your sweet boy.
