The Eau Claire Sheriff’s Department hopes someone will step forward and help deputies find out who shot a horse in a rural area earlier this week.  When deputies arrived at the property along County Road-M in the Bridge Creek area, they found the horse was bleeding from its legs and stomach.  Investigators say the animal was shot with a shotgun and a neighbor reports hearing gunshots Wednesday morning.  A veterinarian says it will take one-or-two weeks to determine if the horse will survive.
