Heartless thieves have dumped the carcass of a miniature pony in the same southeast Queensland paddock it was stolen from just two days before.
Three-month-old mini colt Jake was stolen from a property on Kooralbyn Road, south of Brisbane, on Boxing Day.
The animal, according to one of its owners, needed consistent medication and was very sick with sand colic and constipation.
“Please return him to us, or leave him somewhere and let us know where he is,” the woman said.
“He is not weaned, his mother is frantic, and he is dependent on her for milk.”
This page has since been renamed “Bring Jake Justice”.
“But dumping his body back into the paddock was a low, cowardly act, and now we want to pursue this until they are brought to account for their actions,” the post said.
Investigations are continuing and anyone with information is advised to call Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.
