    [DFW] 7-Month-Old Horse Shot at Close Range
    A 7-month-old horse valued at $20,000 was killed on a ranch west of Weatherford.

    She was discovered Sunday morning in a pasture on the 72 Ranch, about five miles west of Weatherford.

    The owners of the ranch said the filly was bred from “Light N Lena” and “Playboy’s Special Copy,” a champion line of professional cutters.

    “I don’t understand how someone could do something like this,” said owner Kris Larsen.

    The sheriff said investigating the shooting is a top priority.

    “We won’t tolerate this behavior in our community,” Fowler said.

    Parker County Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the shooter. The ranch owners are also offering an additional $1,000 reward.
