RCMP investigate suspicious deaths of wild horses west of Kamloops …

KAMLOOPS, BC: On March 10th, 2023, the Tk’emlups Rural RCMP received a report of several wild horses killed on British Columbia Crown land, north of Walhachin, BC, approximately 65 km West of Kamloops, BC.

Investigators were led to the specific location, where it was confirmed 17 horses had recently been shot. They appeared to be from a herd of feral (wild) horses which frequent this area.

The RCMP’s Forensic Identification Section carefully examined the scene, along with a veterinarian, and a BC-RCMP Livestock Investigator.

The motive behind this disheartening act cannot be confirmed at this point. However, investigators will continue to collect and examine everything available.

It is acknowledged that these horses are of cultural significance to the local Skeetchestn Band.

If you have any information, you’re encouraged to contact Cpl. Cory Lepine, RCMP Livestock Section, at 250-299-7462.
