Horse, cow stolen near owner’s home in southwest Miami-Dade

A horse and a cow were recently stolen near their owner's home in southwest Miami-Dade, authorities said.

One of the animals was reported stolen the morning of Sept. 19, and the other was believed to have been taken about 8 a.m. on Nov. 29 from the property in the 12300 block of Southwest 47th Street.

Miami-Dade police said the 12-year-old, sand-colored quarter horse named Cash is worth $29,000, while the 3-year-old Black Angus cow named Matilde is worth $1,000.

The owner of the livestock said his animals were being kept at a property around the corner from his home.

He said the fences were weakened by Hurricane Irma and a lot of his animals got loose.

He said he eventually got all of his animals back, but is now missing both Matilde and Cash, who authorities believe were stolen from the property. 

Anyone with information about the thefts is asked to call Detective R. Hernandez at 305-252-8311 or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
