From the Harwich Police Department:
On Sunday, February 9, 2020 at approximately 9am, the Harwich Police Department received a 911 call for an injured horse at a barn on Derby Lane in North Harwich.
Harwich Police Officer and a Dennis Animal Control Officer responded to the scene to investigate. The initial investigation revealed that someone entered the horse corral sometime overnight on Saturday and used the handle of a pitchfork to impale the horse.
We are deeply disturbed by this heinous attack on a defenseless animal. The Harwich Police Department is investigating this matter as a felony offense against an animal. If you live in the area and have security cameras we ask that you please contact Detective Sergeant Bob Brackett at 508-430-7541.
