Winds blow over horse shelter

AMES (KWWL) -- A powerful band of storms blew over a shelter at Iowa State University, fatally injuring one horse and leaving several others hurt.

Faculty members say the shelter was damaged during Sunday's storm, which also toppled a 45-foot tree nearby.

School officials say a mare injured by the shelter had to be put down.

But Iowa State faculty members pulled a trapped yearling out of the fallen shelter. The yearling was able to stand and walk away after the rescue.

Officials say several other horses also required attention, mostly for minor cuts and scrapes.
