A horse has had to be put down, after it was tormented by a group of youths in Co. Waterford.

A horse had to be humanely put to sleep, after it was driven bare back until the point of injury in Co. Waterford.

The incident occurred yesterday evening, September 2nd, in Tallow in Co. Waterford. Gardaí were called to the scene amid reports of an injured horse. Upon arrival they then called in the local Waterford Animal Welfare who immediately organised for a vet to come to the scene.

The attending vet from Lismore Vets identified significant bruising to the horse’s body and head and it was decided it was in the horse’s best interests to humanely put it to sleep. It was reported that the horse had earlier been seen driven bare back by a group of local youths, which happened to be the eve of the Tallow Horse Fair.

“Waterford Animal Welfare responded to a call tonight from the Gardai to help an injured horse in Tallow. We immediately organised a vet (Pat) from Lismore Vets.” They posted.

“Unfortunately, the horse was humanely put to sleep. Bruising to the head and body were identified. The horse was seen earlier being driven bare back by a group of youths. This on the eve of the Tallow Horse Fair” The post continued.

Waterford Animal Welfare say they will return to the area to monitor the Horse Fair today, September 3rd.

“We will be returning tomorrow to monitor the event. Any concerns that people may have at the event can be passed on to us on 0876551152.” They posted.
