SOUTH PASADENA (CBSLA.com) — Flowers and candles are now next to this horse stable at San Pascual Stables in South Pasadena after 10-year-old KitKat had to suddenly be put down. Her owner, too upset to show her face on camera, believes KitKat was beaten.
“Someone took her out of the stall and tied her and tried to either ride her or beat her and that’s how she got injured,” the horse’s owner, who did not want to be identified said.
CBSLA is told the horse had been checked on at 10 p.m. Tuesday night and was in its stable. It was found out of its stable and tied to a pipe corral early Wednesday morning. The horse was so badly injured she needed to be euthanized.
“Oh its awful. Its really awful. Everybody loves their pets and horses are special pets,” KitKat’s owner said.
The humane society and the South Pasadena Police Department say its an open investigation but they haven’t found any evidence of foul play. Many who keep their horses at San Pascual Stables have come up with their own theories as to how the horse got out of its stable and was found bloody and left to die but did not go on camera with that information .
Cameras have been put up around the stables and a security guard has been on duty until after midnight. If you have any information please call police.
