Rocket and Mickey: Horses Survive Vicious Attack

Rocket and Mickey: Horses Survive Vicious Attack

 

Two young horses, a yearling and a colt, were recently attacked by one or more animals and are recovering from their extensive injuries at the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine, Large Animal Center.

A Deputy Sheriff received a call on the evening of December 5th that a horse was roaming at large. The deputy was able to locate both the horse and its owner. It turns out, however, after inspecting the horse and speaking with the owner, that both of the horses had recently been attacked by another animal, possibly one or more dogs, and sustained severe injuries.  West Baton Rouge Animal Control officers visited nearby residences, but could not determine if any dogs or other animals in the neighborhood caused the injuries. The owner tried to tend to the wounds himself, but soon realized that the horses needed far greater medical care that what he could provide.

The owner of the two horses, after conferring with sheriff's deputies, agreed to surrender both horses to the West Baton Rouge Animal Control, which, in turn, transferred them to the Humane Society of Louisiana.

The Humane Society, which deals with injured and abused animals on a regular basis, arranged for them to be examined at the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine, Large Animal Center.  Both horses needed immediate, emergency care.

"Rocket," the Quarter Horse yearling, suffered a severe laceration to his back left knee, which left his tendon exposed. "Mickey," a three-month-old Tennessee Walker/Quarter Horse mix, experienced severe, life-threatening trauma to the right side of his face, which left the facial bone of his skull exposed. Mickey has received around the clock care, including a blood transfusion, pain medication, and antibiotics. Mickey is tube fed and the bandages that cover most if his muzzle are changed on a regular basis.

The West Baton Rouge Sheriffs Dept conducted a thorough investigation and reviewed the case with the district attorney's office. The DA's office reasoned that since the injuries, although severe, were accidental and not caused by the owner, they would likely not accept nor pursue criminal charges of animal neglect or abuse.

Both horses have gained weight over the past several days. Mickey's convalescence is expected to take several months. Due to the seriousness of the injuries, the cost of the horses' care is expected to exceed more than $6,000.

The Humane Society of Louisiana needs our help today. With every purchase of a shirt, hoodie, tote, bracelet, necklace or accessory, you can make a difference for both Rocket and Mickey. They can only do it with your help.

Humane Society of Louisiana

Our humane society was established in 1988. We operate two no-kill sanctuary: one for companion animals and one for farm animals. We are also a private detective agency, licensed by the state and one of our primary activities is to investigate cruelty to animal complaints. We work directly with dozens of law enforcement agencies on a regular basis, providing tips and logistical support, especially in the rural areas of Louisiana, where there are few resources for animals.

With every purchase, you can save an animal in need.
