Criminal Justice Quote: The Horse Tail and Mane Thief

     State police searched for a suspect who cut the manes and tails from three horses at a western Pennsylvania horse complex. Horse hair is used to make jewelry and tail and mane extensions for show horses. Their hair can be used to make brushes, violin bows, hat bands and wigs.

     The thief struck during the lunch hour on February 18, 2015 when the horses were unattended in a open field along a road in Jefferson Township, Butler County. It takes years for horses to grow back their manes and tails. [I guess they'll need extensions now.]
