  1. Please have someone from your office contact me. I have a story I would like to share. I am from south Florida and our horses are being stolen and killed for their meat. My cousin’s horse was stolen and found days later-the head and rib cage left under palms and all his meat off his bones. Geronimo was like out family. He was tied short to the palm tree where his blood is dry now and the rope burns are obious to the pain he was in as they hacked him to death. To our suprise, so many of our neighbors have had their horses stolen to. We would like national attention to this matter. Please help.
