Local 5-year old donates life savings towards Saddle Club reward
Five-year-old June Mitchell overheard her parents talking to friends about the horses injured at the Big Pine Saddle Club back in June of this year and the concern over the high cost of medical treatment for the horses facing their owners. She told her mother, Kim, that she was worried about the injured horses and she wanted to help.
June went home and made a special gift bag and placed her entire savings of $3.16 from her piggy bank in it. She then gave it to the Big Pine Saddle Club to be added to the reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons who set fire to a truck on the property and savagely attacked several horses.
Thanks to the five-year-old’s donation, the reward now sits at $18,732.66.
