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.

I'm afraid this is one of my weaker reports.I failed to include the correct details in the correct sequence.One glaring error was my failure to provide details on the exact location of the incident.Another is that there was no mention of what became of the possible suspects,whether they were seen fleeing,whether there was any suspicion of a possible hoax,as you point out.Since it is too late for a rewrite,I will have to let it stand and be more careful about hitting the save link next time.Sorry.
