    Default Horses attacked north of Pontypool...

    The wife saw these pics on a community Facebook page with a warning to others that the horses were attacked on Saturday night.

    Cant think what would do this beyond a big cat ? Sure to revive the big debate......

    Could a black bear do that?

    Bears are maulers. They use their size and weight to tackle prey. Once on the ground they continue to maim and often finish a kill biting at the spine.

    Cougars are precision killers. They will often take the windpipe on larger prey and the back of the neck on smaller prey.

    Nothing about this says cougar to me.

    Also, does the scratch across the back of the rump look like 5 toes to you?

    I imagine a black bear [I]could[I] but not sure if it would ? Plenty of berries and apples around right now, I figured a bear would take the easy way before resorting to attacking a full grown horse.

    I see at least 4 claw marks in one of the photos....

    I bow hunt farms close to there. I also know that there's a quite few Bears in the general area. They've been there for a very long time and aren't hunted much because it's all private property and very difficult to get permission to hunt. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if that was done by a Blackie. It looks like it to me.

    Why not? They have no problem taking down a Moose.

    That’s what I thought. Don’t believe it, just go to you tube.
