MCSO said the horse is believed to be in its late 20s to early 30s. Despite the injury, the horse was alert and sifting the ground for food. The horse is in serious condition.

Detectives said they have no leads at this time. If you have information, call the MCSO Animal Crimes Hotline at 602-876-1681.
