MISSING EQUINE Fancy, Near Knoblesville, IN, 46060NetPosse Report ID # : 2133 (6496)
Description : I contacted a rescue that was advertised in Alexandria,IN by a woman (contact Crystal for name) to help me place a mare that was given to me in an emergency situation. I could no longer keep her due to financial hardships at that time.
The woman (owner of rescue) insisted for me to bring Fancy to her at Strawtown auction yard where she would take her from there to a better home she claimed to have already set up for her.A contract was signed, agreement was made as to assure Fancy would be going to a safe home and not to slaughter.I sent with Fancy a purple halter that had a leather strap where snap used to be.As well as food and supplies to help out for about a week. The woman agreed to send updates, info and pics of Fancy's well being and safety. Three months passed,no updates or pics. The woman had just moved to Middletown Ohio.She gave me five different stories as to Fancy's whereabouts and safety. She finally said the mare was dead, killed by a draft horse in a mans pasture. She said she would give me the mans contact info but never did. To this day I wonder if Fancy is safe and alive somewhere out there.
Shortly after that happened I filed statement with authorities against her for fraud. I could not afford an attorney at the time.
