Exotic show horse stolen in southwest Miami-Dade

Owner heartbroken about horse of 8 years

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Miami-Dade police are searching for an exotic show horse stolen from its southwest Miami-Dade ranch overnight.

The 11-year-old Andalusian show horse, Deseada, was taken sometime late Wednesday or early Thursday morning.

 

Police said neighbors heard a disturbance in the area when the incident occurred.

Deseada gave birth on Dec. 3, and although her foal is still eating, she needs her mother.

"It's like losing somebody's mother, " owner Mauricio Guillen said.

 Guillen, who has had Deseada for almost nine years, said losing Deseada is like losing a family member.

Anyone who has information on Deseada is urged to call the Miami-Dade police agricultural unit at 786-218-8344.
