Pima sheriff to investigate possible horse cruelty

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON – The Pima County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a possible case of animal cruelty against a horse.

Somebody found a dead horse on X9 Ranch Road near Old Spanish Trail in Vail. The property is Arizona state trust land.

The horse was tied to a tree and covered with a tarp.

The Arizona Department of Agriculture sent a livestock officer to investigate, but it appears to be a case of illegal dumping. The Department of Agriculture does not remove dead animals.

The sheriff’s department is sending an animal cruelty detective to investigate further.
