GRAND COUNTY, Colo. — The Grand County Sheriff’s Office says they are investigating an alleged animal cruelty case involving someone that was pulling a horse with a truck in an unincorporated part of the county near Grand Lake.

The Sheriff’s Office says the incident was recorded on video and shared on social media which resulted in several public requests for an investigation.
