Blackjack lying on ground – from SPCA

Two caleche horses have been rescued by the SPCA from their alleged abuser.

Director Alanna Devine says the animal shelter received a call from Montreal Police last Sunday.

“According to witnesses, a horse had collapsed on the way back to the stable, and the driver of the horse had kicked the horse while he was still on the ground.”

    Absolutely abominable behavior. How do people live with themselves when they have been so abusive to a poor defenseless animal. I will never understand this behavior. I only wish for them exactly what they have given in turn. Suffering and pain beyond despair.

  3. Will be interesting to see what the SPCA does, if they are anything like what we have here in the U.S. they will do nothing. The New York carriage horses live the same way.

    This industry is like so many others….callous, barbaric and profit driven.
