A woman who accused a Charleston horse-carriage company of negligence, now faces allegations of the very same crime.
Nancy Lane alleged negligence against Carolina Polo and Carriage Company in Charleston, sending a 15-page letter to Charleston city officials after accusing the company of hiding sick horses from the public. The Post and Courier of Charleston reports Lane also detailed in the letter that Carolina Polo also delayed medical care and cutting costs by feeding the horses low-quality hay. In the letter Lane accused Carolina Polo manager Robert Knoth of “willfully neglecting and abusing his horses.”
Now, an attorney representing the carriage company has filed a civil lawsuit against Lane, who the company says contracted with them during a two-year period when five horses died. Attorney Capers Barr III said that “it’s very interesting, of course, that these horses’ deaths occurred at her hands.”
Lane’s animal-neglect investigation still remains open.
