LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles police say the death of a horse found with its tail tied to a telephone pole in the San Fernando Valley and initially believed to have been shot in the head has been ruled an accident.
The Los Angeles Times reports (https://lat.ms/1SH2jTA ) the animal had been found April 9 in front of a home in Sylmar. Officer Rosario Herrera said Monday a necropsy determined that the animal had not been shot or beaten.
She declined to release any details, other than to say officers believe the horse may have become entangled in a horse trailer and died of strangulation.
Det. Eric Bixler had initially told City News Service that unspecified evidence was left at the scene and that investigators believed they would be able to identify a suspect.
