Authorities: Horse wasn’t shot
FARGO (AP) — Authorities say a horse found dead near Enderlin shortly after the opening day of deer season likely wasn’t shot as first suspected.
Cass County officials say an investigation by the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association revealed a 3-inch puncture wound too shallow to be from a gunshot.
Investigators believe the horse ran into something after being chased by a predator and punctured its own neck.
