The Floyd County Sheriff told WKYT the horses appear to have been shot with a low-caliber rifle.

Dumas Rescue said this is not another shooting. These horses were just not originally found.

Of the horses found Sunday, Dumas Rescue said there was another yearling, who has obvious signs of struggle marks and another possibly pregnant mare.

The reward is now up to $20,000. If you have any information, you can call the Floyd County Sheriff's Office at (606) 886-6171.
