Gardaí in Longford are appealing for information after a young foal was stabbed to death at an animal sanctuary.
In a statement, on Thursday, January 23rd, Hungry Horse Outside, said: “Today, we witnessed something we never imagined we would. At some point, last night, one of our yards was broken into and an innocent foal, who was not belonging to the charity, fell victim to a brutal attack where he was stabbed which ultimately led to his death."
“An innocent pony, not even a year-old, died needlessly and senselessly and in the most brutal way. A calculated and planned attack.”
“Whilst we are aware there are already photographs circulating, we have purposely chosen not to post them to this page as we feel they are too distressing.”
“However, this attack is the lowest of the low, it is really incomprehensible to us.”
“This is currently under Gardai Investigation and we would urge anyone with information to make contact and make known anything that may lead to the arrest and conviction of the people responsible for such a horrendous crime.” the statement concluded.
