MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - Police in West Virginia are looking for those responsible for tying a tow rope around the neck of a horse that later died.

Berkeley County Sheriff Kenneth Lemaster Jr. says the horse was euthanized Wednesday.

Lemaster says two suspects believed to be teenage boys were seen running away from a pasture where the horse was found Monday east of Martinsburg.

Kija Wilson says her husband owned the horse. She says the rope was tied so tightly around the horse's neck that it had to be cut off with a razor.
