Horse tail thieves

Friday, February 20, 2009

Some people rob banks, and some steal horses' tails. The Telegraph:
The latest outbreak has occurred in a rural area southeast of Denver in Colorado.

An intruder broke into a pasture and unevenly cut off the hoof-length tails of half a dozen Belgian draft horses and ponies.

Other horse owners in Elbert County, Colorado, have also reported tail thefts, while similar cases have been recorded in recent years in Iowa, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Florida.

But police are puzzled as to the motive behind the crime. Horse owners said it would not make commercial sense to steal tails in such limited quantities, as horsehair fetches no more than $80 (£56) a pound.
