The Humane Society of the United States is looking for the person or persons responsible for abandoning and injuring a horse near Soso.

A reward of up to $2500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of who ever is responsible is being offered.

The horse is a red sorrel. He was found in early March in a remote area of Jones County on West Brushy Road near Pleasant Home Road and Highway 533. It had severe injuries to its back and legs and was malnourished.

"This horse has been through severe trauma, not only physically, but even his spirit will even take a long time to heal. He was essentially left to suffer and die on the side of the road and was rescued just in time to save his life," said Lydia Sattler, Mississippi State Director for the HSUS. "It is important to find the person responsible for the possible abandonment and injuries to this horse and hold them accountable for their actions."

The horse was taken to Trails End Horse Haven where it is recovering from it's injuries.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Jones County Sheriff's Department at 601-425-3147.
