HEYBURN, Idaho (AP) — Minidoka County officials found another mutilated animal just more than a week after a Shetland pony was brutally abused.

The Times-News reports that officials found a mutilated rabbit and its entrails strung up on a campus fence at Mt. Harrison High School. Minidoka County School District Superintendent Kenneth Cox says he was informed of the disturbing sight just minutes after receiving a call from the Sheriff's Office about posting signs for a pony in Rupert who was mutilated Sept. 6.

The pony, named Patches, was reportedly taken from a yard in Rupert and dragged down a paved road. The pony was still alive when it was found, but it was so badly injured that it had to be put down. Minidoka Sheriff Eric Snarr says he doesn't believe the two incidents are connected.
