Horse Killings Have Rural South Florida on Edge

"These are our pets and they're considered as mostly family members to these people," he said.

Gustinger said, "We're really looking to the community to solve this."

Dane adds there are a few precautionary measures horse owners can take.

"If there are gates that are accessible to the road, put locks on them... Use flood lights where that's feasible...Spot checks throughout the evening," he said.

"One thing we don't recommend is locking horses in barns because if there was a fire... If there is a community of horseowners they may want to set up taking turns monitoring the area."

Anyone interested in learning more information on how you can help save the horses can go to Crime Stoppers of Miami-Dade. In addition, the SPCA of Southern Florida has its own Web site "Help the Horses."
