Subj: Stolen Horse and Goat Update
Date: 9/17/2002 11:43:46 AM Eastern Standard Time
is scheduled for sentencing on Oct. 2, 2002 at
the Kenosha County Courthouse 912-56th Street, Kenosha at 10:30AM room
has an arraignment scheduled on Oct 2 at 8:45
AM room 117. The two of them will also face charges in Jasper
County, Indiana for the theft of the three horses stolen there.
Unfortunately, the vicious suffocation death of our little pet goat
Biliene was done in another county, and we have yet to find out what
county it was done in.
Any support will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you for keeping me up to date on any missing horses. We are going
to be in court again on Oct. 2 for the sentencing of one of the thieves
of our ponies. Whenever I receive info from you, I make sure I forward
in to as many people as I can including state Government, media and
other animal welfare agencies.
My question is, what more can be done to help raise awareness of this
ongoing problem??? And what can be done to help enforce stronger laws
for the people who do this. The asst. DA that handled our case
admittedly screwed up and made a plea bargain, but his stupidity and
apologies don't help us. He just took this to lightheartedly, you know,
(there only animals) attitude. Until he saw me break down and realized
they are part of the family. Any suggestions.
I'm not afraid to continue pursuing this matter, whatever the
outcome is of our case. We found that in Indiana, the killing of our
goat and animal abuse is only a misdemeanor. Where here in WI., it is a
felony. I am getting quite an education of the legal system thru all of
this, maybe I can put it to good use!
Thanks, Cindy Bart

The horses were found in Ky. But the goat is still missing! There is one person in custody and a warrant will be issued for the other one. We don't know how many were involved.
Subj: Alert info
Date: 5/24/2002 11:02:43 AM Eastern Standard Time
Thank you for keeping me updated on alerts. I have forwarded the information on to some of the contacts I had during our recent theft. Just to update you on our situation. The ponies
seem to be improving each day. Our goat was suffocated to death in Indiana, and only one of the thieves has been to court where a deal of 1 count of theft, will be his only charge. We plan on fighting that! The other thief will appear in court June 20th for the first time.
