Update on shocking horse abuse in Burriana
Time is dragging on for a starving herd of horses who still remain in the same shocking conditions as when Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre were first asked to help over a month ago. Breeder Morgan Jensen, initially brought 12 horses to Spain from the USA in 2001.
A dispute over ownership then broke out and Morgan Jensen is fighting to recover the remaining seven horses.
The dispute over ownership of the seven surviving horses was then placed in the hands of the courts who placed an order over these poor, unfortunate horses declaring that they couldn't be re-homed or moved until ownership was established.
The horses were seized in a land dispute over 3 years ago and are slowly dying of starvation and ill treatment, and living in squalid conditions.
An animal right's organisation heard about the horses' plight and intervened to try and help these unfortunate animals.
Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre understands that the Judge dealing with the case is now to decide whether the horses should be moved to an animal protection charity; the animal right's organisation has given the details of both Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre and another organisation based in Malaga who have also offered to take some of these poor horses.
If the Judge decides to move some of the horses to our care they will need specialist veterinary treatment for their injuries.
Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre relies entirely on donations, we receive no official funding whatsoever and so our resources are being stretched to the limit. We are just one rescue centre and the Burriana case is only one of many cases of abuse that we are involved in.
We desperately need more funding to help these animals. We never ignore a call for help!
Let us hope that the suffering and agony that these poor horses have endured ends soon as it has been going on far too long. It's ludicrous that in this day and age and in a European country the welfare of the animals is not considered. Even the laws that are in place to protect against animal cruelty have been held up in red tape within the legal system.
