Authorities are investigating after someone cut the tails off several horses in Natrona County in the past week.
Quinton Gladson, who lives on Meadow Lane east of Casper, tells the Casper Star-Tribune he noticed Wednesday that the tails on three of his horses were significantly shorter. In the other Natrona County report, someone made off with an estimated 8 inches each from an appaloosa and two mustangs near Poison Spider Road west of Casper.
Horse hair can be worth quite a bit of money and is often used to create belts, paintbrushes and the bows of musical instruments.
