Sadistic Trainer Charged After Video Shows Horse Being Dragged Behind Vehicle

Published: December 16, 2022 at 08:31 PM Author: Penny Eims

Millbrook, Ontario, Canada – An Ontario horse trainer is facing animal cruelty charges after the authorities viewed video footage showing a distressed horse being dragged behind a moving vehicle. The woman facing charges is identified as 23-year-old Solstice Pecile of Wishing Stone Farm.

Unbelievably, Pecile uploaded the disturbing footage to Facebook herself, apparently assuming that people would find the appalling situation amusing. Facebook user Jamie Magdalene, appalled by the twisted footage, shared the videos to her own timeline, stating:

Solstice Pecile of her family’s facility Wishing Stone Farm in MILLBROOK, ONTARIO shared the following videos of her “training” a client horse by dragging it behind a moving truck. This is NOT her first offense being caught by a client dragging an animal from a motorized vehicle.

She continues:

“The videos show her laughing at the amount of blood, calling the horse a re**ard for bleeding so much, etc. She sent these videos to friends and also posted it on her public page thinking people would find it funny.”

The horse in the video suffered injuries – pools of blood from her back hooves can be seen on the ground in the video footage.

Fortunately, officials have taken swift action against the disgraced trainer. Brent Ross, the spokesperson for the ministry of the solicitor general, told the Daily Hive:

“The ministry can confirm that Solstice Pecile, 23, of the Township of Cavan Monaghan has been charged with Causing Distress to an Animal under Section 15 (1) of the Provincial Animal Welfare Services Act.”

Ross stated that “the accused will appear in court on Jan. 11, 2023, at the Cobourg Provincial Offences Court.”

If you are as outraged and disgusted by this blatant act of cruelty as we are, please add your name to the petition today. If convicted, Pecile faces a sentence ranging from a fine up to $130,000, imprisonment for a term up to two years, or both.

We the undersigned demand that Solstice Pecile is held responsible for cruelly dragging a tethered horse behind a moving vehicle, causing the animal distress and injuries. We are petitioning for Pecile to receive the maximum punishment allowable by law for Causing Distress to an Animal under Section 15 (1) of the Provincial Animal Welfare Services Act. At sentencing, we hope to see Pecile prohibited from working with horses in the future.

Of note: Quinn, aka Ezra, is back with her original owner.
