Days ago, a skeletal horse was rescued from a stall behind a gas station in Houston, Texas. The horse is so thin that it seems implausible that she is still standing. On August 21, the Houston SPCA posted images of the emaciated horse, writing:
Our investigators have rescued this emaciated horse with badly overgrown hooves from a stall behind a gas station. After no medical attention and severe neglect, we’ll be making sure this animal gets the care they need 💙
Judging by the images, it would appear that someone stopped caring for this horse a long time ago. Given the horse’s extreme state of emaciation, it is a miracle that she is even able to stand.
The animal welfare agency has not provided any details about the horse’s owner. They only ask that people in the area reach out to them when/if they suspect that an animal is being neglected or abuse, writing:
Call 713-869-7722 to report cruelty, or file a report on our website. https://bit.ly/31iEtcM
There has not been an update on the horse’s condition since the initial August 21 posting. Find the Houston SPCA on Facebook at this link.
