RCMP in Breton are asking for the public's help to locate and return six stolen horses to a farm in the Winfield area.
Mounties say sometime on the evening of Dec. 6, unknown person(s) entered a property on Hwy 13 between Buck Lake and Winfield.
Tire tracks on scene suggest a truck and trailer were brought in to load the six horses. The owners discovered they were missing the next morning.
The animals are described as:
