ADDISON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A horse belonging to the Lapeer County sheriff’s department has been injured after being chased by coyotes at a farm in neighboring Oakland County.

The attack comes five days after coyotes killed another Lapeer sheriff’s department horse nearby.

Lapeer sheriff’s Lt. Bruce Osmon says neighbors found the mare on the ground Friday with a 2-foot-long gash on her abdomen. The site is in Addison Township, 15 miles southeast of Lapeer.

The Flint Journal (https://bit.ly/1uQcVSr ) says a veterinarian is taking care of the horse named Lady on a nearby farm.

Osmon says that Lady most likely was cut by running into something while being chased by coyotes. He says the coyotes also have attacked chickens and ducks on the farm.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources and wildlife specialists are investigating.
