The owner of a barn near Sandtown De, where a miniature horse was violated with an object in August, shot a man trespassing in the barn on Tuesday night. State police said the homeowners of a house on Pony Track Road, a 73-year-old man and his 65-year-old wife, went to the barn around 9:30 p.m. after an alarm alerted them to an intruder.
There was a 45-year-old man inside and the male homeowner shot him in the legs, state police said. Police wouldn't say whether the incidents are related, but in August someone entered the barn and assaulted a horse inside. The Delmarva Equine Clinic in a Facebook post said the animal had been "sexually molested" with an object, which caused serious trauma.
Dems' Midterm Advantage Disappears
The Democrats' all-out attack on Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, which culminated in a blisteringly partisan hearing, last Thursday, may have backfired on the party just before the November elections.

The Democrats' advantage on the generic ballot question plunged from 11 points last month to just 2 points this month. The IBD/TIPP Poll has been credited as being the most accurate poll in the past four presidential elections, and was one of only two that correctly predicted the outcome of the November 2016 presidential election.

Even Chucky Knew
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) did something last Monday that he rarely does: he praised President Trump.
“As someone who voted against NAFTA and opposed it for many years, I knew it needed fixing. The president deserves praise for taking large steps to improve it," Schumer said. "However, any final agreement must be judged on how it benefits and protects middle-class families and the working people in our country."
