BEND, Ore. (AP) - The owner of a horse that was found dead Wednesday near Bend believes it was killed by a cougar.

Theresa Denham tells KTVZ (https://bit.ly/1w5uVYc ) it was ripped open through its neck and chest and partially eaten.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife confirms a cougar was seen in the area Monday but biologists can’t confirm the horse was killed by a cougar because the carcass was buried after it was found by irrigation district employees.

It was a retired Tennessee Walker show horse named Miracle Walker.
