What should I do about this woman?

Postby MayAndPetit » Sun Feb 03, 2013 7:22 pm

There is a woman who lives up the road from me, she has two horses, loads of cows, goats and sheep but she cant look after them all because she doesnt have enough money. The RSPCA have been called many times but she just keeps rescuing. The horses dont have rugs on in the snow or rain and they dont have daily food. Their fields are littered in corregated iron, a crumbled building and wooden pallets.

Call World Horse Welfare. I've found them to be very good.

Thanks, this was also a problem as where I walk my dogs theres a field, littered with rubbish, with 2 ponies in. They are selling the field but I'm scared that the ponies will be dumped.

Try not to interfere with the woman yourself. The police usually don't bother with these problems so give World Horse Welfare a call and they'll try their hardest to help. Make sure your not overexaggerating - they may not need a rug and it may not be the womans fault that people dump their rubbish. WHW will advise them about how to care for the horses.

hi its very frustrating and distressing as a compassionate human being to see animals living in such terrible conditions. Its so easy for friends and family to advise you not to get involved but then who is left to help these poor animals. I have found the RSPCA practically impossible to get any help to resolve the suffering of neglected animals. They normally have to be knocking on deaths door before they will intervene. All you can do is keep trying, maybe try more animal charities that are local to you. People seem to be happy to turn a blind eye, and ignore these quite often starving miserable helpless animals, but they are helpless and depend on us since it is humans that made them domestic in the first place. There is also the British Horse Society you could try. Good luck x

It must be awful for you, but the Police can't really do much. World Horse Welfare would be the best definitely, so contact them and explain the situation. In the meantime, as long as the ponies do not seem overly uncomfortable with their surroundings, just keep an eye on them.
