GLENWOOD, Iowa (AP) – Seven horses at a rescue farm in western Iowa had to be rescued again after  saboteurs cut wire fences and knocked down wooden ones at the farm.  The horses were seen running loose on a highway Thursday, near Glenwood. That’s where the Hooves and Paws Rescue farm is located. Owner Genea Stoops says she received a call from the Mills County Sheriff’s Department informing her that the horses were loose.

She says she was away from the farm at the time. After returning and corralling the horses, Stoops discovered that a wire fence had been cut and her wooden fence had been knocked in. No horses were injured.
