HAMILTON, Ohio — Ohio authorities are looking for two loose dogs they say killed two mini-horses and injured a full-size horse so badly it had to be put down.

The Butler County sheriff’s office Dog Warden Unit says one of the mini-horses’ owners shot and killed a third dog involved in the attack.

The mini-horses were named Bella and Pablo. They were being boarded at the home of a relative of the owner when Friday’s attack happened. The horse was euthanized Saturday.
