Mono County deputies are investigating the deaths of two mules, found last weekend inside their holding areas.
Although a sheriffâ€™s department spokesperson said, â€śthere was no evidence of foul play, the deaths still puzzled the officers, along with members of the Frontier Pack Train team.
The pack train team told officers they received a call informing them that it appeared two mules were lying dead in their holding area that was set up eight days previously.
The Pack Train confirmed that two mules â€śhad been killed inside their holding areaâ€ť and looked to have been dead for several days.
A Pack Train employee stated that all the other mules and horses in the holding area were unharmed.
The incident has been forwarded to Mono County Sheriffâ€™s Investigators, along with the law enforcement officers from the U.S. Forest Service, to investigate the cause of death to the two mules.
