Horse owners from across both North and South Carolina are worried for their livestock’s safety as a string of horse killings and mutilations have put the community on edge.
“In the most recent incident, a quarter horse named Trigg was cut on the leg down to the bone and was slashed so deep on the stomach that its intestines were coming out at a Campobello pasture,” owner Ann McGinnis told the Herald-Journal, as WBTW 13 reports.
A November 15th report from FOX Carolina explains that two horses were killed in just two weeks and another mutilated after being assaulted with an unknown weapon.
Local police began investigating after the second horse was killed and now the third attack has prompted an even stronger police response.
One local veterinarian who examined the horses says that there is no doubt that these wounds came from a sharp weapon. The vet, who wants to remain nameless for fear of retaliation, says that these wounds were too exact, precise, and deliberate to come from any natural source.
Now, after a group of concerned horse owners gathered to meet with local officials, law enforcement from across Greenville, Spartanburg, and Polk counties are working together to end this terrible reign of terror.
No answers have been given, but owners are taking extra caution, installing video cameras, and even making extra patrols.
