3 Miniature Horses Fatally Stabbed In Dallas

DALLAS (AP) – An animal cruelty investigation has been launched in Dallas after three miniature horses were found stabbed to death outside the owner’s home.

WFAA-TV reported Wednesday night that Maera Ortega discovered the dead horses in her yard. She’s now worried about the safety of her family as investigators try to determine a motive for the horse killings.

Ortega says one of the horses had been tied to a tree. All three animals appeared to have been struck in the head while in a fenced area.

Ortega, who found the dead animals Monday, says the family bought the miniature horses a couple of months ago.
