After someone with a sharp eye and a kind heart spotted a thin
to a small pen, the person contacted PETA's Emergency Response Team. We immediately got in touch with the local humane society, which was on the
case right away! The horse was rescued from her pitiful little mesh prison and
transported to a stable, where she can now walk
freely for perhaps the first time in months, maybe even years.
I wonder how many people passed by this horse every day
without giving her a second thought. Yet all that her happiness depended upon
was the intervention of one concerned passerby. Please, if you see an animal you
believe is being neglected or abused, be that one wonderful person who takes a few
minutes out of the day to make a crucial difference.
Not sure what to do when you suspect cruelty or neglect? PETA can help.

police department. If the police are unresponsive, please call PETA
