Horse farm on lookout for vandals

The stalls at McConathy Farm are empty Saturday night. Owners rushed their horses out after discovering their tails clipped. Now, you'll find police officers inside the barn, questioning witnesses and trying to figure out who's behind almost a dozen acts of vandalism.

"Well at first it just felt more like a prank, someone just poking around, being pranksters. But it really did start to get very scary when, at more intensity, the horses were being spooked, gates were being left open," says Laura Hadley.

Hadley says Friday they noticed soap in the horses' trough, halters, lead ropes, and a fire extinguisher missing, and bales of hay cut.

"When you start talking about killing people's animals and destroying their lives - that's when you cross the line," says Hadley.
