What the hell is wrong with people? This is absolutely absurd and uncalled for.
Two emaciated horses are recovering after officials say they were found in a stall piled with three to four feet of manure and had over 3 foot long hooves. The horses were found on a property in Woodbine, Md.
A veterinarian said the horses suffered from the worst hoof neglect they had ever seen. Both could barely move because their hooves were so long. Another horse was found on the property, but rescue officials said it had to euthanized due to irreparable injuries.
The two surviving horses were taken to the Days End Farm Horse Rescue to receive treatment.
In order to transfer them to the rescue, officials said they had to sedate the horses and remove portions of their hooves. Officials say the horses likely went without medical care for at least 15 years.
15 years??? Are you kidding me? Officials state that animal cruelty charges ‘could be’ pending. Could be? I think it is a pretty open and shut case. These animals are in horrific condition and were neglected and left to just stand still in their own manure, one didn’t even make it out alive. This needs to be a little more than a slap on the wrist for the people responsible for these horses.
What do you think?
