North Dakota – Video began circulating on social media showing an injured horse being ridden by a Dakota Access Pipeline protester who claims it was shot by security.  “We came back and they started shooting guns at us.  We’re unarmed, we just got horses,” the rider told the camera.  “We just barely got away, they got some of us, they got two of us,” he went on to explain.

Reports indicate security has been shooting horses and riders with less-lethal rubber bullets, and one horse was killed by a rubber bullet fired at close range by a smooth bore 12-gauge shotgun.  Security has also been seen chasing horses and riders with ATV’s.
