Houston Neighborhood Becomes Dumping Ground for Horses

Abandoned Horse

Law enforcement rescued an emaciated horse from a neighborhood located south-east of Houston, TX.  The 8 year old mare was extremely emaciated and had trouble walking.  The mare had been abandoned in a ditch just off the road, she had apparently been left to die.  Officers were able to catch the horse and safely load her into a trailer.

It’s a scene that is becoming quite common in this neighborhood, and residents are furious.  Dead and dying horses are dumped in their community almost every week. and no one knows who is doing it.  Local resident Lupe Vega told reporters “We get a lot of dead horses, a lot of emaciated horses, that are dumped here to die.”  Anyone seeing a horse being abandoned is encouraged to call law enforcement immediately.
