Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s “Census Cowboy” is being charged with animal cruelty and his horse euthanized after riding his horse down a major expressway as part of a social justice protest.

The protest ride seriously injured the horse, forcing veterinarians to put it to sleep.

“Adam Hollingsworth, 33, was held on $25,000 bond during a court appearance Wednesday after he was charged with a felony count of aggravated cruelty to an animal, as well as misdemeanor counts of reckless conduct, trespassing and other traffic offenses,” local TV station WTTV reports.

Despite being charged with various crimes, including animal cruelty, Hollingsworth says he would do it again in the name of social justice.

“Would I do it again? Yes, I’d do it again,” he tells WTTR. “I’ve been in jail, I had a background, I’m not perfect … That was something worth going to jail for.”

Hollingsworth rode his horse at full gallop down the Dan Ryan Expressway to promote the “Kids Lives Matter” movement, which calls for more social spending on children’s programs.

Riding a horse at full gallop on hard pavement can seriously injure it. When the horse’s hooves began to break and bleed from the abuse, Hollingsworth began whipping and kicking it harder.

At this point, local police had been forced to block the expressway and follow Hollingsworth, who was illegally riding in traffic during the afternoon rush hour.

The horse eventually collapsed, and could not be saved. Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Kevin Deboni says due to severe blood loss and dehydration, “the horse’s eyes were dilated to the point they looked like cartoon eyes.”

Hollingsworth is known as the “Census Cowboy” after being hired by Lightfoot to promote Census participation. Census numbers are used to determine congressional representation and federal aid, so liberal politicians and groups have been heavily urging urban residents to be counted.

During a July 13 press conference, Lightfoot put on a bright green cowboy hat announced she was “calling out the ‘Census Cowboy’” to round up Chicago residents, telling Hollingsworth to ride his horse into urban areas to draw attention and promote participation. Hollingsworth is being paid for the program, but not through tax dollars, according to Lightfoot’s office.

Your protest means NOTHING. To make one point , you killed an innocent horse. That negates you first protest .You should have to run barefoot down a sharp rock quarry.

The “Census Cowboy” is an absolute IDIOT and should NEVER BE ALLOWED TO OWN OR HAVE POSSESSION OF A HORSE! He made fools of himself & Mayor Lightfoot for her encouragement of this event. They should both be charged with CRUELTY TO ANIMALS!

The anus has 4 more horses. How does this lowlife afford to keep them? They should be taken away to a sanctuary immediately.

Census Cowboy was charged with animal cruelty among other offenses. The animal cruelty charge is a felony which, if convicted, will result in the loss of his gun rights and loss of voting rights. And hopefully loss of his freedom for a LONG time.

What a sick way to gain attention? This nut job needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The horse was a victim in a pathetic prank. Anyone with the least amount of sense could have known the outcome.

In the real world, yeah. But that’s Chicago. He could end up being the next Mayor with those credentials.

As much as I dislike your comment, I begrudgingly live in Chicago, and unfortunately your comment may be true. I’m like a unicorn in this city, conservative to the core.

This is Illinois
If this is indeed a “felony,” this scumbag will plead down to a misdemeanor offense.
This is America…. nobody is ever punished for the ACTUAL crime they committed!!!
It’s always a lesser offense.

It’s CHICAGO, Kim Foxx will probably DROP all charges against him. Just like she did with Jussie Smollett. Despite all the video and his own comments, she’ll claim there wasn’t enough evidence to prosecute him.

And, as far as Child lives matter, those idiots think the answer to everything is throwing more money at it. That mayor could save a lot of children simply by closing a few of those abortion mills. Or how about fining or imprisoning men not supporting their children? Oh! Right. that might be considered cruel and inhumane punishment.

What pisses me off is they keep voting these idiots in office. How stupid can some people be. Now an innocent animal had to suffer for them and they have no concerns for that animal because he said he’d do it again. Can’t we just shoot these fools.
