Illegal hunting is being connected with the death of two horses in Smith County.

Two horses living on private property off of Highway 64 east of Chapel Hill were reported missing last week and found dead Saturday. According to Texas Park and Wildlife Game Warden Chris Green, the horses were spooked and broke their legs as they fell through a cattle guard. Green said that the bodies were clearly dragged into a nearby creek in a possible effort to hide the animals. Both horses were 12-years-old and pregnant.

The exact cause of startling the horses is undetermined but a pop-up hunting tent was left behind by illegal trespassers on the day the horses were found.

Texas Park and Wildlife is investigating the case.
