Horse left at Ohio Amish-area Walmart needs home

January 07, 2012

SOUTH RUSSELL, Ohio (AP) — Wally the Walmart horse is looking for a new home.

That's the nickname given to a 9-year-old standardbred horse that a humane society says was left at a northeast Ohio store by an Amish teenager more than two months ago. Humane Officer Christian Courtwright in Geauga County says the teen apparently unhooked the horse from a buggy, tied it to a rail at the Walmart in Middlefield and never came back for it.

He says store employees noticed the horse the next day and tended to it until police took it to a caregiver.

He says the humane society now has control of the horse and expects it to be available for adoption soon.
