Rafalca,the Olympian horse owned by Ann Romney,wife of Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney,was assaulted in a malicious attack earlier today by by members of the 18/8 Anselm Crips street gang.Rafalca was being transported in his air conditioned horse trailer from his home in Andover,Massachusettes to the Massachusettes Equine Dental Clinic for a routine dental appointment when the trailer was impacted by a 300 pound pumpkin thrown from a highway overpass.Investigators on the scene discovered gang graffiti on the pumpkin when it was reassembled.The graffiti is associated with the 18/8 Anselm faction of the Crips.They are known for drug dealing,murder and extortion in the Boston Area.Although the gang has been suspected of similar highway overpass assaults,it was not immediately clear whether the gangbangers knew the identity of their victim.A veterenarian who was flown in by helicopter stated that Rafalca was"a bit shaken up,but unharmed." Mrs. Romney could not be reached for comment.
