Police searching for horse slasher in Northern Virginia

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Fairfax Police say they are looking for whoever is responsible for slashing three horses in Herndon.

The horses, which are used in a non-profit therapeutic riding program, required medical attention, but the cuts have not led to any deaths.

Police say a donor has paid for the initial veterinary bills for the three horses, but the Spirit Equestrian Program is accepting donations for further care.
