Carcasses of tortured horses found on property

Carcasses of tortured horses found on property

 

The Humane Society of Louisiana recently completed the seizure of 12 neglected farm animals, including six horses, three cows and three donkeys. Acting on a tip, representatives from the HSL visited an abandoned farm in Walthall County, Mississippi.

The authorities found multiple carcasses of other animals who had died from neglect. Imagine dying from starvation confined to a pin. This is torture of the worst kind.

Authorities also found a dozen farm animals surviving on their own on a barren pasture, without proper care, food or supervision.

You can see the photos of some of the seized animals and some who died on the property. Particularly disturbing are the photos of the animals who apparently died in their stalls and were never removed or buried.

Their skeletons are all that is left.

The animals who survived are being tended to by veterinarians and farriers (an expert in equine hoof care), since many of the animals are suffering from overgrown hooves, are critically malnourished or are suffering from "rain rot" - a serious equine bacterial skin infection.

Due to a surplus of horses in the South, horse owners are purchasing horses at very low prices and are often failing to provide the resources to keep them healthy. The number of cruelty complaints involving horses has skyrocketed in recent years, according to the Humane Society of Louisiana, which now responds to hundreds of complaints each year involving equine abuse and neglect.


UPDATE 5-18-17: The Humane Society of Louisiana, based out of New Orleans, worked with the Walthall County Sheriff's Office several weeks ago to remove 12 farm animals who were being criminally neglected. Several had died on the property and were left to rot. "Pilgrim," shown trying to forge on a barren piece of property to stay alive has since put on at least 100 pounds of weight and has a beautiful, shiny coat. The Humane Society of Louisiana operates both a companion animal and horse sanctuary and needs your help to keep its operations going!
