SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) – Several horse owners in the Carolinas say they aren’t entirely convinced five horses were attacked by wild boars and not slashed with a knife.

Maryanna Haymon has owned horses for 40 years. She told the Herald-Journal of Spartanburg she has never heard of a wild boar attack on a horse.

Agents with South Carolina’s State Law Enforcement Division announced Wednesday a report about the attacks.

The report said five of six horses seriously injured or killed in northern South Carolina are nearby North Carolina this fall were attacked by wild boars.

Haymon says she is still keeping a close eye on her horses.
