An Alberta horse owner is desperate to find her missing Clydesdale mare, presumed stolen from her farm in Entwistle, west of Edmonton.
A week ago Sunday, Cindy Thomas says six-year-old Molly disappeared, while five other horses remained in the barn. She, along with a team of volunteers have searched a five-kilometre radius around her property, but found no trace of the mare, no tracks, nothing.
Thomas called Alberta slaughter house Bouvry Exports, fearing Molly had been stolen and sold for meat. But representatives told her that no Clydesdales had been dropped off recently.
A GoFundMe account has been set up, and more than $1,500 has been raised as a reward for Molly’s return.
Hundreds of people have contacted Thomas to offer their help, and her plea on Facebook has been shared thousands of times.
