STULL, Kan. (AP) -- Douglas County sheriff's deputies are investigating after two older horses that got loose were found shot to death.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/1exDAj3 ) the horses apparently had been wandering south of Stull for several days before being found dead this week.

Darrel Harden says he owned one horse and was keeping the other for an acquaintance. He doesn't live on the 400-acre property near Lawrence and was unaware the horses were loose until being called when they were found dead less than a quarter mile from his land.

Harden said each horse appeared to have been shot once in the chest area, probably at close range.

He says the horses were in good health but were considered pets because of their ages.
