Caboodle Ranch Owner Speaks Out
by Elisa Black-Taylor
Caboodle Ranch owner Craig Grant spoke out on Tuesday concerning charges against him in the February 27 raid at Caboodle Ranch.
It was on this date that the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals went in and raided his property and removed close to 700 cats. This as an outside agency with no ties to the county and Grant feels his cats were literally kidnapped.
Nanette Entrikin, Craigs good friend and assistant who lives on the property, also had her cats taken. Nanette is very rightly upset as these were her personal cats and not part of the ranch.
The cats have been gone five weeks now. Craig is still very upset and asks peolple who question his care of the cats to look at the cats on YouTube. His cats could always be seen laying around together and loving each other.
Craig is now trying to get his cats back and make improvements to the property. He says the rumors of little spent on veterinary care are unfounded. Craig says he has receipts for thousands of dollars spent on medical care for the cats.
Rob Grant says the Caboodle Ranch raid, which led to two charges of animal cruelty and a class action lawsuit being filed, was led as a vendetta. He believes his fathers federal income tax forms will clear him of any wrong doing. This is in reference to Caboodle Ranch funds being used for questionable expenses not pertaining to the cats.
Chuch Collins, attorney for Caboodle Ranch and Craig Grant, cautions people to not believe everything they read. They believe much of the information floating around on the internet is everything from incorrect to downright lies. Collins urges people who want the facts about the case to contact the Madison County Humane Society, the vets for the cats or the sheriffs department as these are much more reputable references to what’s going on.
Collins said during the interview that Grant welcomes the chance in court to prove his innocence.
Do the readers here believe this is all a mistake and Caboodle Ranch should be allowed to improve the property and once again take in cats? Has this investigation been based on false information and carried out with a witch hunt mentality with a common goal to destroy Craig.
Should Nanette get her cats back since they weren’t part of the ranch cats and they shouldn’t have been seized.
I look forward to your comments everyone.
