The Laramie County Sheriff’s Department is investigating two incidents where tails have been cut off of horses in rural parts of the county.The reported incidents have occurred at locations on County Road 109 in western Laramie County and County Road 138 in eastern Laramie County. In both of these incidents, the suspect or suspects knew the residents were not home and entered pastures on the property to cut up to half of the horse’s tails. One incident appears to have been committed during daylight hours and the other during an unknown time frame.

The Sheriff’s Department is asking any other residents who may have experienced similar incidents to report them through Laramie County Combined Communications, or at the Sheriff’s Department at (307) 633-4789 or you can also contact Silent Witness / Crimestoppers at 638-TIPS (638-8477) and remain anonymous, and, may be eligible for a cash reward up to $1,000.

Individuals who are caught and convicted of committing these crimes could be subject to charges of animal cruelty, trespassing, and misdemeanor or felony larceny.

Laramie County Sheriff’s Department Spokesman Gerry Luce says the investigation into these incidents is ongoing.
