MILFORD - The Connecticut Supreme Court has upheld a ruling that horses are a "naturally vicious" species.
The ruling means that owners of horses need to take proper precautions to prevent the animal from causing harm to a person.
The decision stems from a 2006 lawsuit filed when a boy was bitten while trying to pet a horse at a Milford farm.
