Investigators Look Into Dead Pony Found with Throat Slit

Collier County authorities are investigating the case of a dead pony, which was found with its throat slit in the driveway of a vacant house.

The Naples Daily News reports the pony was found Wednesday.

The animal had a laceration from the back of the left jaw, under the top of the throat and ending at the back of the right jaw.

Investigators determined that the injury was not the result of an animal attack because of the precision of the cut. The pony had no other visible wounds and is believed to be between six and nine years old.

As of Friday, investigators had few clues as to who may be responsible.
