A resident in Fillmore County has reported vandalism to his property that includes one of his horses being spray painted.

The Fillmore County Sheriff's Office received the report in the early hours of Thursday morning at the home in the 14000 block of 171st Avenue, York Township.

The homeowner was alerted by a driveway sensor a few hours earlier, and though he didn't find anyone when looking around, he did find signs of vandalism.

As the sheriff's office tells it: "He found vulgar, disparaging remarks spray painted on his building, a horse trailer, and also on a horse located on his property."

The graffiti included disparaging messages against veterans as well as unsavory remarks made about women.
