Warning to horse owners in WI..
Just C&P from the Chronicle of the Horse forum... Trying to spread the word


Especially if you live anywhere near Fond du Lac or New London. A convicted (multiple times over 25 years) sexual abuser and killer of horses named Sterling Rachwal has been released from the mental institution and is loose. He has been in and out of institutions and prison for decades and alway re-offends. He is currently in a halfway house in Fond du Lac, but his family lives in New London. The things this guy has done to horses is beyond can Google him to find out more. Please spread the word so people can keep an eye out for any strangers near their animals. I have personal knowledge of some of the horses he has mutilated and killed. One was a pony, found dead and tied by the front legs over a fence post, with a broom handle shoved up its rectum. he has also rectally torn and cut the nipples off broodmares in foal. This guy is dangerous, and he will do it again.

He drives a 1993 Ford F150, blue in color but not sure what shade of blue, and his license plate is GZ6576
He is supposed to be at the Berry halfway house in Fond Du Lac.. he doesn't have a bracelet, but they are 'keeping track' of him. :-|
If you search the name on google, you'll see his FB page and his picture..
Please spread the word, as much as possible. Where ever, email local barns, repost this, call friends/ family as well.
I know that it makes me uneasy that he isn't being monitored with a bracelet at all, I live in the area as well. :-|

Dear God. I am glad I live on the East Coast, but this could certainly happen anywhere. Details of one court case are here: FindLaw | Cases and Codes

Thank you for posting this! I do not live to far from there and I never heard of that! I will tell people at my barn. I couldn't imagine the type of person that would do that sort of thing, they should stay in jail!

Some people just need to be shot.

Horrible, just horrible. Why don't they put him in the big chair with a shot just to be sure?
