The RSPCA is appealing for information after a fatally injured horse was left to die in a farmer’s field.
The piebald gelding was discovered collapsed in the far corner of a farmer’s field in Stifford Clays Road, Orsett, Essex, on Saturday.
It is thought the horse may have been pulled to where it was dumped as it had injuries to it’s left leg, left flank and left leg which are consistent with him being dragged.Hmmmm....
The horse was microchipped but it wasn’t registered to an owner.Hmmmmm again.....
Inspector Brennan added: “It is a horrendously cruel thing to do to abandon an injured horse. I would really like to hear if anyone knows who left this horse.”Until someone tells you, and you decide it's not politically correct to continue...
OK, stop now. It's no longer amusing:
Vets were forced to put down two abandoned young horses after they were discovered in a "horrific state" collapsed and dying in a country lane in Orpington.
RSPCA officers are appealing for information after the skewbald male pony, thought to be a yearling, and the four-month-old bay foal were found in Shoreham Lane on the evening of October 12.The comments give you a clue...
I have a very horsey friend who refers to all animals marked in such ways as "gypsy horses".
They are beneath her notice as an admirer (and owner) of quality equines.
It's prejudice and snobbery of course, since the markings tell you nothing about the performance of the animal, but hey...
You don't need to wonder to which ethnic group the bastard owners belong.
"Steak & Kidney Lock Openers" - lol!
Yep definately gypos....
"The horse was micro-chipped..."
It's quite shocking to find out that no proper records are kept of chipped animals. I'd always assumed the vet inserting the chip is required by law to fill in details of the owner, as otherwise, what's the point of tagging an animal with a unique ID?
Is this another demonstration of state incompetence, inefficiency or corruption?
"It's prejudice and snobbery of course, since the markings tell you nothing about the performance of the animal.."
They do tell you something about the poor beast's likely lifespan, though...
"It's quite shocking to find out that no proper records are kept of chipped animals. "
But, given it's an EU idea, is it surprising?
