A woman told police that her three-year-old son was attacked by a pony at Pendergrass Flea Market last week, according to a Jefferson Police Department incident report.
After paying $1 for her son to enter the zoo, he began petting a dark brown pony on the neck. Without warning, the pony turned around and started kicking the boy with both back feet.
The woman said she picked her son up to get him away from the pony. There were no adults around working at the zoo to help her. She said two small Hispanic females said that they were sorry for the incident.
The juvenile had marks on his face that were turning dark. The woman told police she was taking him to a doctor.
An officer told the woman to contact the flea market after talking to the doctor and that the police would follow up with animal control.
