Aberdeen man identified as worker killed at BWI

Sheriff's office probes fatal shooting of horse

FALLSTON - The sheriff's office is investigating the shooting of a horse named Mia who was found dead with at least three bullet wounds in a pasture about 6 p.m. Monday.

Owner Cynthia Warner, 56, said she let Mia out to pasture at 7:30 a.m. Monday and went looking for the 17-year-old thoroughbred mix when the horse failed to return to the barn. Mia, valued at $8,500 and ridden exclusively by children, had been shot in the neck, heart, and hindquarters.

Warner said she heard gunshots about 8 a.m. Monday but didn't think much of it because her farm is in a rural area. A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered by Harford Crime Solvers at 1-888-540-TIPS.
