June 11, 2019

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. (AP) — The owner of a miniature pony named Pikachu believes the animal was stolen from her South Carolina home.

Hidden Pasture Farm owner Kate Nichols tells news outlets that the miniature palomino filly disappeared overnight last week.

Nichols told WAPT she has searched for the pony extensively, and there are also no signs that it was taken by a predator. Instead, Nichols she said she thinks someone in the area is to blame.

The station reports Pikachu was well-known in the community for making appearances at children’s parties dressed as a unicorn. Pikachu is 2 months old and weighs 60 pounds (27 kilograms).

Nichols posted on Facebook she believes Pikachu is in danger, and is offering a $1,000 reward for its return. She also wrote “someone knows where she is.”
