A reward’s being offered in a case of animal abuse in central Iowa. The owners of two horses pastured in Polk County found them this week with injuries so serious, one had to be put down. That horse was a mare that was pregnant at the time and though a veterinarian delivered her foal, it died later.
According to media reports, both horses suffered head injuries and law-enforcement officers agreed with the owners that the wounds could not have happened accidentally. The Animal Rescue League of Iowa is offering a one-thousand-dollar reward for anyone who can help them find, arrest and convict whoever’s responsible for the brutal attack on the two horses.
