My question involves animal law for the State of: Michigan.
Back in December I had a woman contact me because she was looking for someone to sell her horses to. I agreed to bring them to my property but told her I could not pay her right away. After a week or so, we came to an agreement to trade services for the horses. After another week she changed her mind and became very harassing and threatening. I told her to come and get the horses or I would charge her for board starting on the day of the notice to pick them up. I received an email from her stating that she was refusing to pick up the horses. I did find out from a police officer that I have the right to charge for board since she would not come get them. My question is: Does the 90 abandonment law apply if I have proof of refusal to remove the horses? I have also placed a question in the defamation section of the site because she has contacted animal control and the police stating that I am abusing and/or neglecting the horses. I have contacted an attorney but don't have the retainer fee that they require.
