OAKLAND COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A horse from the Lapeer County Sheriff's Mounted Unit was chased by coyotes on Friday.

This is the second incident in the last week where those horses were targeted by coyotes. A horse from the mounted unit was killed on Jan. 25 by coyotes.

Lady was chased by coyotes around the farm about noon on Friday when she was injured, the Lapeer County Sheriff's Mounted Unit said on their Facebook page. The farm is near Delano and E. Oakwood roads in Oakland County.

A neighbor found Lady down in the field. She had a 2-foot-long gash on her abdomen, police said.

They were able to get Lady back on her feet and a local vet spent several hours repairing the injury, police said.

The owners suspect the horse as injured from running into something while running away from the coyotes, police said.

Lady was transferred to another farm to heal. The six other horses at the farm were also relocated.
