Police: Horse in New England shot to death by bow and arrow

The Associated Press

BARRE, Vt. (AP) — Police in Vermont are searching for whoever shot and killed a horse with a bow and arrow.

Authorities say the 23-year-old mare, Bunny, was fatally shot sometime between Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning in Barre.

WCAX-TV reports searchers discovered part of an arrow lying in the pasture. Another piece was found in the horse's stomach.

Though it is bow hunting season, Chief Timothy Bombardier says he doesn't believe the slaying was a hunting accident.

He says hunters aren't supposed to be out during the hours that investigators suspect the shooting happened.

Bombardier says Bunny also couldn't have been mistaken for a deer due to her size, color and where she was penned.

Police say the killing is aggravated cruelty to a domestic animal and felony unlawful mischief.
