Someone was being payed rent to keep a horse in their barn. They then informed the owners of the horse that their horse passed away. The barn owner did not ask how they would like the body disposed of. The barn owner informed the horse owners that they had already buried the horse. The horse owners requested to see the burial site and the barn owner couldn't produce one. Months later the horse owners requested to see the burial site so that they may plant flowers for the horse's birthday. The barn owner changed their story and stated that the horse was never buried on the property but instead paid to have the carcass taken away by a company. The barn owner couldn't produce a receipt. The horse owners contacted all animal carcass disposal companies in their area and none have record of taking away the specific horse breed from barn location. The horse owners were also contacted by a friend that they saw their horse leaving the barn alive around the time of the horse's death. Is there any sort of legal case against the barn owner?
This is a contract issue; possibly a theft.
If the actual owners wished to pursue the issue, they were, and still are, free to do so.
