I want my gawddamned pony
Where is my pony? I’ve wanted a pony my entire life … no gawddamned pony here. I am so angry. I was a little girl, I’d make pencil drawings of ponies, now this MAN gives people ponies and other animals if they’re his friends. He takes them away from poor people who can no longer feed them, it looks damned good on tv, AND he gives them to his friends, and here’s just one. This one is a donkey to a deputy. Totally illegal, just the first of many cases I will be bringing you over the next few weeks.
Where is my pony?
Here are the records. I ordered their “Estray Animal” files, and they finally had to cough them up. Remember the Sirbasqu Arabians, looking for them, Shetland pony mysteriously show up at your house, we got those missing too, pigs, cattle, and a lot of Alpacas. I also have a missing Palomino. Wonder where that horse is, I love Palominos.
This is your Santa Sheriff for Life.
Enjoy, much more to come.
AGRICULTURE CODE TITLE 6. PRODUCTION, PROCESSING, AND SALE OF ANIMAL PRODUCTS SUBTITLE B. LIVESTOCK CHAPTER 142. ESTRAYS
Sec. 142.013. DISPOSITION OR SALE OF IMPOUNDED ESTRAYS. (a) If the ownership of an estray is not determined before the third day after the date of the final advertisement under this chapter or if the estray is not redeemed before the 18th day after the date of impoundment, the county has title to the estray and the sheriff shall, except as provided by Subsection (e), cause the estray to be sold at a sheriff's sale or public auction licensed by the United States Department of Agriculture. Title to the estray is considered vested in the sheriff or the sheriff's designee for purposes of passing good title, free and clear of all claims, to the purchaser at the sale or for the purposes of Subsection (e).(b) The sheriff shall receive the proceeds of the sale and shall allocate those proceeds in the following order of priority:(1) payment of the expenses of sale;(2) payment of the impoundment fee and other charges due the sheriff; and(3) if applicable, payment of any amount for maintenance and damages due the owners of the private property from which the estray was impounded.(c) The sheriff shall execute a report of sale of impounded livestock and file the report in the estray records of the county clerk.(d) If there are sale proceeds remaining from the sale of an impounded estray after all expenses have been paid, the sheriff shall pay the balance to the owner, if known. If the owner is still unknown, the sheriff shall pay the balance to the county official charged with collecting and disbursing county funds, who shall deposit any payment received to the credit of the jury fund of the county for the uses made of that fund, subject to claim by the original owner of the estray.(e) If a sheriff determines that the sale of an estray under this section is unlikely to generate sufficient proceeds to cover the expense of the sale, the sheriff may, instead of selling the estray:(1) donate the estray to a nonprofit organization; or(2) retain the estray and use it for county purposes. Amended by Acts 1987, 70th Leg., ch. 51, Sec. 1, eff. Sept. 1, 1987; Acts 1999, 76th Leg., ch. 1329, Sec. 1, 2, eff. Sept. 1, 1999.
