Reward offered for leads in horse shootings
NAPOLEONVILLE - Sheriff's deputies asked for the public's help tracking down whoever killed two horses at an Assumption Parish home this week.
Sheriff Mike Waguespack said the horses were shot Wednesday afternoon at a Napoleonville home. Deputies said both horses had been shot multiple times, and one had to be put down by a vet.
The sheriff asked if anyone saw any suspicious activity between noon and 3 p.m. Wednesday in the area of Pecan Street in Napoleonville to call the the Criminal Investigative Division at 985-526-1627 or Communications Division at 985-369-2912. A reward may be offered for information which leads to an arrest and conviction.
This comes after deputies released a "wanted" poster earlier from a pair of cattle shootings in Napoleonville. Deputies said those shootings happened along Highway 402, and one of the cows which was shot died as a result.
