East Union Township police and humane officers from the Hillside Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) are hoping the offer of a cash reward will help them identify who discarded the carcasses of two horses near East Union, Pennsylvania.

In a written statement, the East Union Township Police Department said officers discovered the remains of a chestnut horse with a white blaze and another white horse covered with a beige tarp and discarded on the side of a road in Phineyville on Jan. 3. Both animals appeared to be malnourished.

Investigators estimate that the horse were left at the roadside sometime during morning hours of Jan 1 and Jan. 2.

The Hillside SPCA is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the incident.

Anyone with information about the case should call the the East Union Township Police Department at 570/384-5829.
