Neglected horse has died

With profound sadness, death of neglected horse is announced

On Thursday afternoon, the Humane Society of Louisiana announced the passing of a severely neglected horse who was recently rescued from deplorable conditions in Ascension Parish. The animal welfare agency let its Facebook followers know that the horse, named “Miraj,” had died.

It is with the heaviest of hearts and profound sadness that we must report that sweet Miraj has died.

Miraj had fought long and hard to survive, despite the cruel neglect he endured, but the toll of being denied the most basic of care had already taken its toll. Those who grew to love and care for the beleaguered horse took comfort in the fact the Miraj was surrounded by those who cared for him in the end.

The shelter described how the decision was made to let Miraj go:

Our Shelter Manager, Jessica Cameron, was with him at the vet hospital in his final moments. Within a half an hour, he went from being responsive to unresponsive, at which time, all were in agreement with the decision to euthanize him, as his breathing began to be labored.

According to the shelter, Miraj will be buried under trees at the veterinary hospital’s beautiful property, where he quickly became beloved of the staff and caregivers.

A man has been arrested in this sickening case of cruelty – according to the Humane Society, 32-year-old Kenneth D. Corley was arrested on Tuesday. Prior article about this sad case here.

    I knew it would take an unmistaken miracle for him to survive. He was just too immaciated. I would give him a body score of 0. I’m thankful he left with an army of angels by his side. It is admirable that the vet is going to lay him to rest on their property. I hope he is grazing in an ocean of emerald pastures beyond heaven’s gate.

    I knew Miraj would not be able to overcome this. OMG here come the tears,there is just something about the intentional starvation of an animal that particularly tears my heart apart! And yes they have arrested and charged this evil POS but will they REALLY punish him? It is tha lack of any kind of significant punishment that adds insult to injury to all of the many,many animal lovers and animal advocates! We get no comfort in the pain and outrage we feel about a horror like this when there is never any justice for the needless suffering and death inflicted upon a helpless dependent animal. OMG! I’m so so sad! RIP MIRAJ
