Who Killed Two Horses In Putnam County?

PUTNAM COUNTY, Ind.—Police are investigating the killing of two horses in Putnam County earlier this month.

The Putnam County Sheriff says someone shot and killed both horses on a farm on North US Highway 231 in Bainbridge on July 1st.

Kat was a 6-year-old mare that belonged to Karen Phillips’ 15-year-old son Ryan.

Mama was a 22-year-old mare who was retired from a reining career.

They were both going to be shown later this month at the Putnam County Fair.

Now a $5,000 reward is being offered to anyone with information leading to an arrest.

Police are not sure if this was a random killing or if the horses were singled out.

Anyone with information on the person responsible should contact the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office at 765-653-3211.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise money for the reward leading to the arrest of those responsible.
