I am joining the search for the mini pony lost on Île Sainte-Hélène @CBCMontreal
I really hope this doesn’t end up being some dumb publicity stunt
I’m out patrolling with the group Sauvetage Animal Rescue. They say as recently as last night, mini hoof prints were found on the island.
I spoke with someone who works on Île Ste-Hélène. He says as far as he knows, no one who works on the island — and there are a good number of people who work here — have seen this pony. He says there’s an event happening this summer and he believes this might be a publicity stunt
The animal rescue team is out looking for the pony anyway. Éric shows me the grain they have to attract the horse. They chose the tastiest grain.
Gabrielle Meloche, spokesperson for Parc Jean Drapeau, says she believes the pony is real and that it actually is/was on the island, but she says they’ve checked their security cameras and searched for the pony but haven’t found it.
The animal rescue group got another more legit-sounding call so they left. Now it’s just me looking for the pony. C’mon lil buddy. You can fit in my truck.
I found a fox #wildlife
Heh, welcome to the pony search @CTVMontreal
@CTVMontreal I'm sad to report that I've left Ile Sainte-Hélène without finding the pony. I hope it is found and is in good health.
As suspected, this was a hoax perpetrated by a French-language network, blah blah fake news, blah social media virility. The same network published an damning, fictional story and apologized for it a full year later, so... maybe they don’t have the moral high ground here🙄
More context on that damaging + erroneous report presented as news by the media company responsible for this hoax: cbc.ca/news/canada/mo…
