A 58-year-old Rockford man is facing charges after trying to poison his neighbor's horse with anti-freeze. 

WZZM-13 reports that the owners spotted one of their neighbor's acting suspiciously in their back pasture early Tuesday morning.

A surveillance camera on the property caught Kevin Greenwald pouring antifreeze into their horse's water bucket. The owners were able to remove the bucket before the horse could drink out of it.

Greenwald now faces a killing/ torturing animals charge and could face 5 years in prison if convicted.

He told police he was angry that the horse had recently gotten out of its pen.
