An investigation into a horse’s death in Warsaw found that the animal died accidentally.

The incident happened Friday when the horse owner arrived at her barn and found the 27-year-old animal dead inside a stall. Christina Meade, the owner, noticed that the horse had blood underneath its jaw area. Meade also noticed that the barn doors were closed but had originally been left propped-open.

Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department deputies met with Meade Friday night and returned to the scene Monday. Sgt. Chad Hill tells Newscenter 16 that deputies examined the stall intensively. The detectives concluded the horse was not maliciously injured. Evidence suggested that the halter got caught on an unknown objet and caused the original wound, according to Hill.

Meade believes someone familiar with the farm allowed the horse outside the barn while she was gone. She asks that anyone with information contact her with details.
