Pedro is the horse who inspired the creation of S.O.S.  He was tethered without food or water and intentionally starved to death by a cruel owner, who was punishing him for getting loose and causing him to pay a fine for a loose livestock violation from Animal Control.  After White County refused to press cruelty charges, S.O.S. filed charges that caused his owner to receive a 9 month jail sentence.  This was the first cruelty case to be won in the county.
