SYRACUSE — Police are investigating the deaths of four horses that were found shot in a pasture while their owners were out of town.

The horses were shot in their corral, 4000 W. 3000 South, sometime July 12-15, the Davis County Sheriff's Office confirmed Friday.

Whoever shot the horses appears to have walked down the dead-end road to where the horses were, locked them in the corral and shot them, Davis County Sheriff's Sgt. Susan Poulsen said.

Anyone with information about the shootings is asked to call the Davis County Sheriff's Office at 801-451-4150.
