Two Teens Charged With Horse Shootings Appear In Court

Two Eastern Kentucky teenagers appeared in court on charges they killed three horses and wounded several more.

The horses were used for trail rides at a park along the Kentucky-Virginia state line. Investigators say one of the horses was shot more than thirty times.

The Pike County Sheriff's office says the horses were grazing when the boys chased them with a vehicle and then started shooting at them last week.

Because the two are juveniles, the court won't release much more about the case against them.
