– “Who cut out the horse’s tongue? Nobody. Sheriff’s Office now says it was an accident”
“‘After considerable deliberation and several expert opinions, this injury is determined to be an accident,’ the sheriff’s office said in a post on social media Tuesday [June 26] morning.”
“Sgt. Carla Carter, citing a report about the injury, said the horse’s tongue might have become lacerated on its lower front teeth. After the tongue became lacerated, the horse might have pulled its head back, or panicked in such a way that caused the horse to drop her tongue in the field,” by Rolf Boone, The Olympian.
