Out of respect for people involved I too will not mention names. From my understanding, I have heard of a mother and daughter combination who attempted to remove a horse in the same general area of Wolfe Island, Ontario. When the ferry arrived in Kingston (with horse in the trailer), the Police apprehended them and escorted them back to the farm from which horse was removed. One would wonder why the Humane Society was not called for this alleged "cruel landlord", who allegedly "tore off skin with his cattle brush". Funny thing is, if they were so concerned about the welfare of the horse itself why then was it left on the property long after this pair moved to Kingston, Ontario (which is only a few minutes away from Wolfe Island)? I guess the Police Force must have deemed the situation to be an unauthorized ride for the horse as the horse was escorted back and returned to that property.
Currently, allegedly, the same daughter is involved in yet another small claims court case in Perth, Ontario (preliminary hearing was held on Mar 16, 2011 @ 9:00am EST) over a bill of sale for yet another horse allegedly removed from a man's property in Smith Falls, Ontario. This man has, apparently, obtained the necessary handwriting experts from the Ottawa region to validate his claim that the bill of sale provided for the horse removed from his property is false. In fact, the case is still active in Perth, Ontario. The next court case is scheduled for April 20, 2011 (approximately).
Libel is a terrible thing and could result in damages being awarded.
