PETITION TARGET: Thames Valley Police
UPDATE (12/1/2021): A spokesperson for the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) said that unfortunately they weren’t able to connect anyone to this cruel act.
“I’m afraid there was sadly no further information come into us on this horse or those responsible for dumping the horse’s body in this way,” the agency said.
We are disappointed that no one was able to be found and held accountable for this atrocious act, but we thank the more than 32,900 people who signed our petition urging for a comprehensive investigation. We will continue to do all we can do advocate for animals so senselessly and cruelly treated. —Lady Freethinker Staff
An innocent horse, discarded like trash on the side of the road with her legs zip-tied together, died in Buckinghamshire, England, where a passerby discovered her lifeless body.
“She was not microchipped, so we don’t know where she has come from, or who did this to her,” RSPCA Inspector Jaime Godfrey told the Mirror, “so we’re appealing to the public to share any information they may have about how she died and who dumped her.”
Unfortunately, neglecting and abandoning horses is not uncommon across England and Wales. Roughly 90 discarded horses are rescued each month, making it all the more important that the culprit is found and brought to justice, setting a precedent to show that animal cruelty is not acceptable and to discourage others from committing the same crime.
Sign this petition urging the Thames Valley Police to use all available resources to identify and charge the perpetrator, who cruelly bound and dumped this horse, denying her any chance at survival.
This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information about this crime is encouraged to call the RSPCA at 0300 123 8018.
