Horse tails cut, feed contaminated on Ky

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Police in Lexington are investigating why the tails of horses were cut, their feed contaminated and soap put into the drinking water for the animals.

The Lexington Herald-leader reports that the incidents happened Friday and Saturday at a farm on Jacks Creek Pike leased by Lisa McConathy.

The tails of nine horses were cut, barn windows were broken, and messages like "Let's play a game, find me" were left around the property. McConathy says horse feed was contaminated with cat food and amounts of oil feed supplement that could make the horses sick.

McConathy says the strings on hay bales were cut and blankets were cut off horses, too, she said. Lexington Police Lt. Scott Blakely said no one has been charged.
