“I was shocked and astonished because I didn’t think anyone in my area would be this way. Then it turned to anger,” Erin Blaisure said to Eyewitness News 3.

He told the publication that there is a myriad of signs for Trump on the road that he lives on, but his sign is one of the few supporting Biden and Harris.

“There’s people with Trump signs up and down this dirt road. I’m the only one that has a Biden [sign]. I should be able to have and vote for any political sign on my property,” said Blaisure.

He says he didn’t see who fired the shots but they were very close to the area his horses graze in. He said he was worried because the commotion could have scared the horses causing them to break the gate and try to escape.

The horses were not injured and state troopers say because they didn’t find any bullet casings so it will be harder to track down a suspect. Blaisure says he has a feeling about who the culprit is.

“I live in a small town, and I live a mile down a dirt road, so, to me, it has to be someone who lives around here,” said Blaisure.

As troopers continue to investigate, Blaisure says his sign will remain out front.
