PERRIS: Fannie Mae abandoned horse, records show
A horse that was found blind, starving and nearly crippled at a foreclosed home in Perris may have been a victim of Fannie Mae.
I reported on the horses rescue last week by a couple of local good Samaritans, but I didnt know who owned the property.
I do now. It was Fannie Mae. Thats what the County Assessors records show, anyway.
I had a feeling this was the case, based on an unreliable tip that was blurted at me by the real estate agent in charge of the property.
When I called Realty One Group, the secretary referred me to an agent named William who seemed nervous about talking about the property especially after I told him I was a reporter. After saying me he had nothing to do with the horse, he spat, It was a Fannie property, and thats all Im telling you, and he hung up on me.
Politeness may not have been his strong point, but at least hes honest. A trip down to the assessors office and a little plugging around on their computers showed it was true. The original owners signed the deem over to Fannie in October last year.
This raises big questions in my mind. Arent there laws against this? What is Fannie Maes policy on this? Im expecting a call back from a company spokesperson tomorrow.

If the former owner left his blind grandmother in the house would it also be “Crony BigGov’s” fault? Unless the horse was on the deed to the house it the previous owner neglecting the horse.
There are gobs of horses neglected and starved by the political/regulator class around me, while a very old and good rancher was robbed of his healthy cattle and barred from ever owning cattle again. Let the economic collapse resume. We need a good dose of morality.
Let the bipartisan socialists dine on their horses after their foreclosures.
Local governments will either begin getting the foreclosures done more properly and decrease property taxes accordingly or face decreasing revenues and spite as long as necessary.
Interesting legal concept. Fannie Mae: “the horse isn’t on the deed.” (Former) property owner: “Fannie won’t let me on the property.”
