Lincolnshire, England – A man was videod pulling his gypsy type horse behind his truck while the mare’s foal ran loose behind.  The video is causing outrage and has sparked an investigation by the RSPCA.

The unnamed driver dragged the horse, who repeatedly pulled back on the rope and struggled to keep up with the truck, through busy traffic, intersections, and past a gas station in the video.  The foal had to dodge traffic to avoid being hit as it struggled to keep up with its mother.

“These images look very distressing,” an RSPCA spokesperson told reporters.  “It must have been very traumatic and painful for this horse to be pulled along in this way with a foal trailing behind. Other road users are also being put in danger by the looks of these pictures.”
