    DALTON, Ga. (AP) - Sheriff's officials are searching for a suspect after a horse was shot to death in northwest Georgia.

    The Whitfield County Sheriff's Office says a deputy on Friday found the horse dead with a bullet wound on the left side of its neck. There were also two bullets on the right side of the neck.

    The sheriff's report says the horse appeared to have broken its neck because of the way it fell to the ground.

    The Daily Citizen-News reports that the killing happened outside Dalton, about 90 miles (145 kilometers) northwest of Atlanta.
