NetPosse.com IDAHO Alert-Pattern shows Miami FL Paint Horses Targeted for Theft |
*** WARNING *** This is crucial info for Paint Horse owners in Miama, Florida, but the info is disturbing!
NetPosse has received information from law enforcement and private citizens that PAINT HORSES are being STOLEN in MIAMI, FLORIDA. The pattern shows that paint horses are deliberately being targeted ... but they are not the only stolen horses in the area! However, we need to make paint horse owners aware of this so that they can be PRO ACTIVE in protecting their horses. This is a horrible notice to post, but it must be done ...
From one officer in Miami 3/8/09: ... a horse was stolen on 2/27; the horse was located on 3/5/09. It apparently was walked down the street to private property and slaughtered. The owner bless her heart was on scene when I arrived. The media was also on scene ... I was wondering have you ever encountered Paint horses being used for any rituals or sacrifices. I have noticed the horses that we have located slaughtered are all paints coincidence I don't think so. This is the first horse that was found where it could be identified by the owner.
From a horse owner with a missing paint 3/3/09: We are having a real problem down here in the Redlands with stolen horses. The head and hooves show up in plastic garbage bags on the dirt roads. These thieves don't even make an effort to conceal their horrible deeds. (believe the meat is processed and sold by the pound)
This information is not being shared to scare horse owners ... but if you have a paint and do not know that horse theft still exists and could happen to you or you have not done everything you can to protect your horse from theft, please go to Stolen Horse International, Inc. ~ NetPosse.com Home Page and find out what is really happening and prevention steps you can take.
There is no guarantee, but after it happens, too often a victim wonders why they did absolutely nothing.
