Sexually assaulted horse recovering

More than three weeks after a sexual assault that severely injured her, a 7-year-old mare is back at home in Glendive, Mont., and will most likely make a full recovery.

DICKINSON, N.D. -- More than three weeks after a sexual assault that severely injured her, a 7-year-old mare is back at home in Glendive, Mont., and will most likely make a full recovery.

Meanwhile, a suspect in the crime has yet to be arrested, but officials say the investigation isn’t over yet.

As for the mare, there might be some issues with fertility, but she will be able to run and jump and play like before, her owner Gerald Reichert said.

“The veterinarian thought that she would heal up and that she would be OK,” he said. “We don’t plan on breeding her. … Not that that makes a lot of difference for the crime.”

The investigation is ongoing, said Stark County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Dean Franchuk, adding that there is some information gathered about the type of vehicle the perpetrator might have been driving.
