LIVINGSTON — The owners of a horse shot to death in southwestern Montana are offering a reward for information leading to an arrest.

Owner Tracy Gubler says she found the body of the 14-year-old horse named Wyatt around 10 a.m. on New Year's Day in its pasture just outside Livingston.

Gubler told The Livingston Enterprise that he must have been shot late on New Year's Eve or early on Jan. 1.

Friends and family members have pooled a reward of more than $1,000 for information leading to an arrest.
