BUTTE, Mont. (AP) — A lightning strike south of Butte led to the deaths of two horses.

The Montana Standard reports lightning struck near Jeff and Colleen Lefever’s horses late Sunday. Her horse, Cowboy, died. Her husband’s horse, Digger, was badly injured and was put down by a veterinarian on Monday morning.

Colleen Lefever says her son noticed the dead and injured horses at about 8 a.m. Monday.

Their other horse, a Shetland pony named Snickers, wasn’t injured.
