Reward offered in Idaho animal cruelty cases

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Humane Society is offering $5,000 in reward money, hoping somebody turns in the perpetrators behind animal cruelty cases in southwestern Idaho.

In one, mallard ducks in Meridian were hit this month by darts from what was apparently a blowgun.

Though the ducks didn’t die immediately, they may not survive if they’re too badly injured or if their wounds become infected.

And in the second case, a horse was shot Saturday afternoon in a field north of Eagle, where a suburban neighborhood sprawls into the foothills.

The horse was euthanized after a veterinarian decided it had lost too much blood to survive.

The Ada County Sheriff’s office downplayed the suggestion this was a hunting accident.
