Horse owner offers $2,000 reward in hair theft

Posted: Updated:

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota horse owner is offering a $2,000 reward for information about the theft of mane and tail hair from his 10 year old palomino mare.

T.J. Aisenbrey told police Friday that his horse, Sundance, had her flaxen mane and tail hair cut for the second time in a month and a half.

The report comes as Wyoming officials are investigating an estimated 100 cases of horsehair thefts in several counties.

Aisenbrey's horse is housed in a paddock and barn on the western edge of Rapid City. The Pennington County Sheriff's Office has no suspects in the case.

Aisenbrey, 59, says he's "totally upset" about the vandalism and says, "If you saw it, you'd be disgusted."
