Thief snips hair off horse tail in Pavillion area

PAVILLION, Wyo. (AP) - A thief has snipped the hair off another horse tail in Wyoming.

The latest theft happened in the Pavillion area. The Fremont County Sheriff's Office says the owner of the mare reported the theft Saturday but said the theft could have happened as long ago as April 10.

The Riverton Ranger reports that another horse on the same property was injured. The owner told investigators the horse may have been injured while the thief was chasing the animals.

Authorities in Converse and Natrona counties reported dozens of horsehair thefts last year. Thefts also have occurred in Colorado and Utah.

Horsehair can be valuable for its use in violin bows, pottery, brushes and in crafts.
