PRESTONSBURG, Ky. (WKYT/WYMT) – The reward for information in the shooting of nearly two dozen free-roaming horses in Floyd County has reached a new high.

Sister-station WYMT reports that deputies now say $23,000 dollars will go to anyone whose information leads to an arrest in the case.

21 horses were found killed back in December 2019 near a strip mine on the Pike and Floyd County line.

Three surviving horses have been recovering at a farm in Simpsonville.
