This is still America.
What happened to Mr. Donahue could happen to anyone!
Down on his luck, he was not offered any assistance by "Humane Societies" or FLorida's Horseman's Protection Association.
Instead they JUST CAME & TOOK HIS HORSES he had bred and owned for decades
WITHOUT DUE PROCESS.

"Most of you are probably not aware of an extreme case of treachery that took place here in Florida last Saturday. 
An elderly gentleman, Mr. Jack Donahue, with a well known Horse Farm was besieged by the County Sheriffs' office while he was out purchasing feed and supplies for his horses.  He came home to find the farm swarming with deputies chasing and catching his Arabian horses - TV cameras rolling - etc.  It was the culmination of an unfortunate situation escalated by today's economic climate. 
 
The claim that initiated  all of this was a report from a neighbor of abuse - yet none could be found when the farm was checked several days before the seizure - yes he was low on feed - cash - and supplies - but the cameras that rolled that day - didn't even recognize that there were 6  - 50 lb. bags of feed in the barn near the stalls.  (this is shown in the camera footage run by the TV station) 
 
 To add to the scenario - no one in the sheriff's office can find the police report  to provide same to an attorney for this gentleman - who has no charges against him - he is now listed on the Petabuse list - along with a map of where he lives! What happened to our American right to privacy?!

Meanwhile - no one will admit where his 26 horses are - no search warrant was presented - he was precluded from going near his animals while they were being seized - deputies chasing the animals all over the place and scaring them half to death - it is believed that several are in foal -
There is much more to this story which we will be glad to share.  Are there any of you out there that can help us - we are gathering information - have set up a bank account for contributions to help defray his expenses - and giving  what comfort we can so that he doesn't go into cardiac arrest -  Thanks for reading!
This man is a personal friend of mine from whom I have bought horses from him in the past. My best friend and roommate was at this farm the day before the raid and says these horses while thin, none were in the deplorable conditions described by the deputies to the press. The horses that looked the worst were senior horses and being thin is not uncommon for older horses.
