Cars, Jewelry, One-Eyed Horse on Auction Block



    Some unusual items are up for grabs at one North Texas law enforcement agency's auction.

    A cow and a one-eyed horse were being auctioned off Sunday by the Tarrant County Sheriff's Office.

    That's in addition to cars, flat-screen televisions and jewelry that the department has confiscated.

    Chief Deputy Jay Six says the one-eyed stallion is a stray that the department picked up in March.

    He says the 20-year-old horse is sweet and isn't sick, so euthanizing it isn't an option.

    The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that livestock are normally sold online or auctioned separately from cars.

    But county purchasing agent Jack Beacham says the department wanted to try something different this year.
