(NECN) The Connecticut Supreme Court heard arguments Tuesday in a case involving the demeanor of horses.
It all began after a horse named Scuppy bit a boy in the face and a Connecticut Court came to a conclusion that horses are a naturally vicious species.
Farmers and horse owners are concerned about the lower court ruling and said that classifying horses as vicious creatures would make insuring the animals too expensive and threaten the state's horse industry.
When the case was first heard in February 2012, a mid-level appellate court said testimony showed that horses are "a species naturally inclined to do mischief or be vicious."
If the lower court ruling stands, Connecticut will be the first state to consider horses inherently dangerous.
