CHICAGO’S “CENSUS COWBOY” ALLEGEDLY MISTREATED HORSE, WHICH MAY NEED TO BE PUT DOWN:

Judge David Navarro called the alleged treatment “terrible.”

“The horse doesn’t know it’s a part of a protest. The horse only knows how it’s been treated,” he said. “It would appear from (prosecutors) its treatment was criminal.”

Assistant State’s Attorney Kevin DeBoni said Hollingsworth kicked and whipped the horse to force the animal on a 7.5-mile trip down the expressway Monday. By the time it collapsed on the pavement near 95th Street, it was in critical condition, DeBoni said.

The animal was extremely dehydrated, its heart rate had doubled, it had cuts to its front legs and its eyes were “dilated to the point where they looked like cartoon eyes,” DeBoni said. “If medical attention was not rendered immediately, the animal would have succumbed to injuries sustained.”
