GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) - A 10-year-old pregnant mare has been shot and killed near Gillette.

The owners discovered the dead horse Thursday afternoon. It is believed the horse was shot sometime Wednesday night.

Campbell County Undersheriff Quentin Reynolds tells the Gillette News Record (https://bit.ly/1WTQwmz ) that a neighbor north of the home said they heard gunshots that night.

Others say they saw a suspicious truck and an SUV in the area between 8:30 and 9 p.m.

The bullet was determined to be small in caliber, but Reynolds did not know the specific size yet.

Hunting season is under way and Reynolds did not know if the act was malicious or accidental.
