Information needed to arrest those who shot and killed 2 wild horses in California

Wednesday, Apr. 11, 2012 — Federal investigators are looking into the apparent shooting deaths of two wild horses in Lassen County near the Nevada state line.
Members of a Bureau of Land Management crew working on a prescribed fire April 3 found the remains of the horses in an area about 12 miles southeast of Eagleville near Newland Reservoir in northeastern California.
The animals had been dead for several weeks but an initial investigation by BLM law enforcement rangers determined that they had most likely been shot, said Nancy Haug, the BLM’s Northern California district manager.
BLM is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the crime.
Haug is asking anyone with information to contact Kynan Barrios, BLM law enforcement agent, at (530) 224-2181.
