Dorothy Pedersen is an
award winning writer and public speaker. She
has an Honours Diploma in Equine Studies, a Certificate of
Horsemanship, and has worked in various segments of the horse industry
for over 20 years.
After having her own horses stolen, Pedersen, undertook extensive
research into the crime of horse theft, and has continued to
investigate this aspect of crime, it's prevention, and detection, ever
since. She's had articles on horse and livestock theft published
throughout North America for almost 15-years (that's several years more
than other present-day sources of published information on the crime),
and has been told by two government sources that she probably knows
more about horse and livestock theft than anyone else in the country.
She has consulted with the Ontario Provincial Police and helped them
establish their livestock theft data base. And she has written
Horses, true stories of horse thefts. Her next book, on horse theft
prevention and detection, will be available at the end of 2004.
