Crook County deputies continue to investigate the shooting of several wild horses in the Ochoco National Forest. In early March, officers found three horses shot to death. And recently Deputy Brian Bottoms found more: “We actually found an additional three horses from the original three. We know one was shot and the other two were so decomposed we couldn't tell exactly how they died.” Deputy Bottoms says the public has been very helpful in their investigation so far, and feel they are closer to finding the person or persons responsible for the slaughter of these horses. If you have any information about these cases, contact the Crook County Sheriffs Office.
