Horse Rescue Burglarized Updated: Tuesday, December 24 2013, 07:14 AM ESTA horse rescue group is hit by late-night thieves Sunday. The Bostic barn of Paws Ranch Equine Rescue was burglarized sometime after 10 p.m. Sunday night. Thieves took more than $12,000 in saddles, bridles, tack and grooming tools from the nonprofit group, which is taking care of more than a dozen horses right now. Officials told Paws Ranch Director Delores Hanser that there have been a series of break-ins along Wells Church Road over the last month. Hanser's residence is next door to the barn, there are cameras and even an electric fence, but during the rainstorms that swept through Sunday night, thieves were able to evade the cameras by pulling up to a back gate. They left the gate open, allowing horses to break into a feed storage room and eat about $500 in stored feed. But Hanser has about 45 volunteers that work with Paws Ranch, some are kids doing community service or school projects and other at-risk youth come as therapy. Hanser says the volunteers can't ride and the rehabilitation program for her horses - some of which have been starved, sick, neglected of beaten - is on hold, with only two saddles left in the barn.
