HIGHGATE, Vt. (AP) - Vermont authorities are investigating the death of a pony killed by a muzzleloader bullet in Highgate.

The Burlington Free Press (https://bfpne.ws/1RM4u8N) reports that the officials believe the pony was shot in a pasture sometime between Tuesday evening and Saturday morning.

Cpl. George Rodriguez said police are treating the death as suspicious, but have not ruled out the possibility that it was an accident. He said a hunter could have mistaken the brown horse for a deer.

Vermont game wardens are assisting state police with the investigation.
