when friend ship goes south

last month we bought a little charlet bucket calf, we named her buttercup, my husband had big plans for her when she got older.....she was my husbands pet project........i found her dead to night, the wire to her stall door broken and a needle caising by the door.....the didn't get little p our brand new goat who was sharing the same stall. there's a strong oder in the stall that smell like maenthynine? crop dusters use it.....
my husband herd her when he was leaving for work this evening around 5 30....i didn't hear any thing when i left to go n brake with him around 11 pm (of course not i'm part deaf) came back around 12:45 am and checked on every one before going inside...and that's when i found her......
flash back to 2 months ago.....i gave away a horse that was "left on our property" by a so called friend who refussed to have the vet come and look at his horse, i understand that he is bipolor, but when you know your a servre case don't go off your meds, in which he has done, any ways back to the horse i gave away, i'm and now 50% owner of the horse untill i have desided that the horse is in good hands, which i could of not picked a better home for him but still if any thing happends i can still remove him.
i go to visit the horse about 3 to 4 times a week and take pic's of his progress ( was really skinny) now with the vet check i paid for and the proper care he is a chub ball and posted a pic of the horse on facebook for getting that i still had the guy on facebook......and now our calf is dead?????.......hhhhmmm we will be shipping poor butter cups body down to the vet in the morning for a optopsy and a report will be made......people when you get pissed at another don't go after there animals.....they didn't do a thing......

Um....

I am sorry to say that your post is so poorly written I am not sure I understand it totally. Ignoring the poor spelling (since I am a crappy speller myself), please try to use capital letters and periods and a hard return so the whole thing is not one big run on sentence. It is just impossible to read that way.

Let me see if I get it:


You purchased a calf.
The calf was found dead.
You are assuming the person who owns a horse you gave away killed the calf.

Did I get that right?


With no proof it might be best to not accuse people of something. You are assuming quite a bit.

I am very sorry about the loss of your calf.

Absolutely agree.

We lost one of our calves this spring. My husband was kicking himself left and right. Things happen. It was not a management issue, it was not foul play, it just - happened.

She said she saw a needle casing?

If you find a needle casing most likely it was attached to a needle...

So where is the syringe and needle? Not an easy thing to throw in your pocket.

Could have just held it, got to truck/car and put it in there?

You suspect someone injected the animal with some sort of chemical? If that is the case, how horrible, what a terrible suffering the poor creature must have experienced. Please let us know the autopsy results when you get them. Sorry for your loss.

it is a huge loss for us......where not sure where the needle cover came from......my husband was on the phone with the vet for about a hour today, since my hearing is next to nill..i don't bother trying to over hear any thing any more untill he comes to tell me face to face, to my understanding they found it to be some thing called black leg ( a toxin that starts when a calf is grain feed) which my vet forgot to vacc the last time he was out.....he told us how sorry he was on his mistake. we desided to forgo having butter cup cut up and desided to burry her in the back pasture instead. we are all stumped on the needle cover by her stall and have kept a close eye on the rest of our little live stock in that area (2 butcher pigs, 2 pot belly pigs, and a kid goat and my chickens).
we are not sure if our former boarder is messing around our farm when we are not hear, he was spotted around our farm about 2 weeks ago by a co worker of my husband who was "stealing our wireless" while sitting in his cruiser doing ummm speed checks.....as he said....our former boarder has really done off the deep end and who know what is in mind for him to do at any point.
