The Chickasha High School Ag Farm was vandalized, according to Chickasha Police.

Police said at least three animals were hurt during the incident and two more will not be able to show during a planned event next week.

Police were called to the barn around 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday. A teacher told authorities that at some point between 10:30 p.m. Monday and 4:30 a.m. Tuesday, someone got into the barn and let the cattle, hogs and sheep out of their pins.

The vandals spray painted graffiti on the walls of the barn and on two show hogs, according to police.

Police said the animals were found in the pastures on the farm and some cattle were on 29th Street, but were taken back into the pens by teachers. All of the animals were there.

The teacher said two sheep went into a hog pen and ate hog feed, which can be harmful to the sheep. They were treated, but authorities said it would be a few days before they could tell how badly the animals were hurt.

A black show boar developed a limp during the incident. Ag teacher Chance McPherson said he believed the limp came from fighting with other hogs.

The two show hogs that were spray-painted will likely be kept from showing at a planned show next week.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 405-222-TIPS.
