A Wadena County Sheriff’s Deputy responded to the location where they were met by the property owner and directed to the inside of the horse stables at the west side of the barn.

The property owner had returned home to find the horse frozen and lying on the ground with a bullet hole.
The deputy searched for any nearby hunters in the area and attempted contact with neighboring landowners. There are no suspects at this time.
