STOLEN EQUINE, RECOVERED – Peptos Gunpowder aka “Twister” – Oklahoma

Summit (Muskogee County), OK, Wednesday April 26, 2017

Twister had been missing from his pasture in Muskogee County, OK since November 16, 2016. Ms. West asked Stolen Horse International for assistance in locating Twister.

On Wednesday April 26, 2017, Ms. West received a tip that Twister was seen in a “For Sale” ad on Craigslist. Volunteers with Stolen Horse International immediately went into action to obtain the information on whom had placed the ad. Once we were able to confirm a contact number, Ms. West contacted the sheriff department and was assisted in the recovery of Twister.

Twister was stolen nearly 7 months ago. His information was posted everywhere both on the internet, Facebook pages/groups, Twitter, Northwest Horse Source, etc.... Thanks to one person who saw the one ad on Craigslist, Twister was found and recovered. During the recovery, it was revealed that the individuals responsible were individuals that Jonelle knew and trusted. She also learned that her other horse, Smokey, was supposed to have been taken at the same time but would not load on the trailer.

Jonelle West-Gothard has provided us with an overview of the circumstances surrounding Twister's disappearance 7 months ago. The rest of the story is located here:
