CORINTH, Miss. (AP) - An Alcorn County couple says pit bulls have killed 1 of their miniature ponies.
Jerry "Bud" Mitchell and wife Bonnie tells the Daily Corinthian (http://bit.ly/PZbaiX) that the horse was killed Sunday night in a barn.
Bud Mitchell says he found the dead horse with a pit bull still in the stall. He says the dog was gone when he returned with a gun. He says he found a second pit bull dead in the barn
Bonnie Mitchell says two four-month old stud colts were being kept in the barn after being weaned from their mothers. The other horse in the stall wasn't harmed.
Bonnie Mitchell says evidently the "pony kicked hard enough to kill 1 of the pit bulls."
The Alcorn County Sheriff's Department is investigating the incident.
