Death of 10 horses in Kings County under investigation

December 7, 2012 |  6:10 pm

Animal control officers in Kings County in the Central Valley are trying to determined who is responsible for 10 dead horses on land belonging to an Indian tribe, the Associated Press is reporting.

Three more horses were discovered close to death on land owned by the Tachi Yokut tribe, the AP reported.

Animal control officers had gone to the same parcel in September and notified the caretaker of a dying horse on the property. The caretaker shot the horse, the AP reported.

Calls to the tribe's headquarters at the Santa Rosa Rancheria were not immediately returned Friday, the news agency reported.
