Horse Sues Former Owner for Negligence

He's not gonna take it
He’s not gonna take it

A horse is suing his former owners in Oregon for negligence after they left him starved and badly frostbitten. Justice, an 8-year old American quarter horse is named as the plaintiff in a lawsuit filed by his new owners, who are treating him well on a farm in the Cascade mountain range.

The revenge seeking stud wants $100,000 for veterinary care along with pain and suffering. This is a real case as reported in the New York Post, the Oregon City Patch and the Independent as well as many others.

I believe it was Friedrich Nietzsche who said: “To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering.” I hope Justice finds meaning as well as the hundred grand he’s suing for. Maybe one day he can even go to college to become a veterinarian like Mister Ed.

Summum jus, summa injuria.

Go to the mirror boy!

Note: It’s been said that it’s better to burn out than to fade away. My my, hey hey.
