8 Horses Killed In Possible Anti-Gay Attack

MSNBC.COM - Eight horses — including one just a week old and another on the verge of giving birth — died in an Ohio barn fire that authorities may investigate as a hate crime, according to a local newspaper.

Ohio resident Brent Whitehouse awoke just before midnight on Easter Sunday to check on Love, his pregnant quaterhorse, only to find a harrowing scene: his barn — which housed seven adult horses and one foal — was glowing orange, the Zanesville Times Recorder reported.

Recognizing the peril of his horses, Whitehouse told WHIZ News he ran to the barn and desperately tried to open the doors and free his animals.

"I couldn't get the door open I could still hear the horses kicking and I tried as hard as I could to get them out and I just couldn't get them out in time."

The flames were so hot a tractor inside the barn melted, Whitehouse said.

The Times Recorder reported that spray-painted epithets such as "f-gs are freaks" and "burn in hell" were clearly visible on the barn's gutted walls.

When asked about the messages, Whitehouse told the Times Recorder "they were hateful."
