STULL, Kan. (WIBW)-- Douglas County Sheriff's Deputies are investigating after two older horses that got loose were found shot to death.

The horses apparently had been wandering south of Stull for several days before they were found dead this week.

Darrel Harden says he owned one horse and was keeping the other for an acquaintance.

He doesn't live on the 400-acre property near Lawrence and was unaware the horses were loose until they were found dead.

Harden said each horse appeared to have been shot once in the chest area, probably at close range.

He said the horses were in good health, but considered pets because of their ages.
