Horse Castration Conviction

A southern Utah rancher was found guilty by a jury last week of illegally castrating horses belonging to a neighbor he was feuding with.

79 year-old Marvin Hunt was convicted of gelding several horses belonging to Allen Bailey, one of them being a prized stallion.

The two men originally agreed to let their horses graze together but, according to Bailey, Hunt became upset when Bailey’s stallion took over the herd. Bailey called the dispute an Old West range war.

Hunt and his son Colby were originally charged with felonies, but the jury returned misdemeanor verdicts.

Colby goes on trial this week for witness tampering. Allegedly, Colby told the person who performed the castrations to deny that he did it.
