UPDATE: Investigators Question If Horse Killed In Canaan Was Dragged By Vehicle
Last week, a horse was killed in Canaan and has remained under investigation by the Maine State Police Dept. The owner of Lucy reported last week that the horse was tied to a cinder block in the front yard to graze on grass. It was during that time, the owner said a car drove up onto the yard hitting the horse and ultimately dragging the horse a mile down the road. As a result, the horse died.
According to WGME13, State police are not seeing any evidence that a vehicle went off the road, hitting and dragging the horse along with it. Police do not deny the horse was hit by a car.
In an article on centralmaine.com, Lt. Mark Brooks of the Maine State Police in Skowhegan said police found no evidence to support there was a vehicle involved in the incident, adding that investigators are still looking for evidence.
In the WGME story, police reported that neighbors told investigators they had seen the horse in the road before.
After the incident occurred, a GoFundMe page was created to raise reward money in order to find the driver who hit the horse. Over $2,600 has been raised on the site, with other businesses stating they will donate as well.
