Turkish man arrested after stealing horse ‘to pass kidney stone’
KAYSERİA man living in the Central Anatolian province of Kayseri was arrested on Nov. 21 after he stole a horse because he had been told it would aid in the passing of his kidney stone, state-run Anadolu Agency has reported.
In his testimony, M.G. reportedly said he stole the horse upon doctor’s advice to ride a horse in order to pass his kidney stone.
During the investigation, police determined that the horse had been seen in a field in the Melikgazi district.
M.G. left the horse in the field fearing that he would be apprehended after the incident began circulating in the media.
A local court later ordered the arrest of M.G.
The horse, Hazal, has previously been enlisted to help treat children for autism. Efforts to locate Hazal are ongoing.
