Missing horse event an honest mistake
LAKE WYLIE A missing horse situation turned out to be a simple, correctable mistake.
Late last month, eight horses were taken from Camp Thunderbird, causing the camp to bring out authorities in search of the missing animals. An online message board for horse theft even put out information on the June 23 event to members looking for the culprit.
As it turned out, the horse removal was an honest mistake. All the horses have been returned.
“It turned out to be a non-event,” said Bobby Harris, camp director. “The horse owner sent his driver to pick up horses at another camp they lease to and the driver mistakenly came to Thunderbird instead. In a matter of hours on the same day, they located the driver and had him round up the horses and return them to camp. The sheriff came out and closed the case the same day.”
No charges were filed.
