In Northern Minnesota, a hunter fatally shot a horse after mistaking the animal for a deer. The Wadena County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, a property owner reported returning home on Wednesday and finding his small colt had been shot in the abdomen and was frozen to the ground. A deputy went to the location and met the property owner and walked over to the barn. A brownish colored colt had been lying on its side with a visible gun wound to its abdomen.

The owner had checked on the colt three days prior to finding the body. The deputy searched the area for nearby hunters, but at this time there are no suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 218.631.7600.
