A devastated horse owner is appealing for information to help find her missing Clydesdale horse which she fears may have been stolen for meat.
Six-year-old mare Moly was last seen over a week ago in her pen on a farm in Entwistle, Alta., west of Edmonton.
Molly’s owner Cindy Thomas found the stable unlocked Sunday morning.
The gentle giant was the only horse missing from the building she shared with five other horses.
Earlier this year in southern Alberta a pair of horses owned by a Lethbridge-area woman were sold to Bouvry Exports meat-packing plant in Fort Macleod while being boarded and were slaughtered.
Cindy said a big draft horse like Molly could be worth more than $800.
She told CTV Edmonton that she contacted Bouvry to alert them about Molly and that the company’s brand inspector told her it had not had any Clydesdales handed in.
