You can often judge someone’s character by how they treat animals.
A horse in Romania had its legs chained together. This is not uncommon practice there. It is done to prevent a horse from running. It’s also incredibly inhumane.
Four Paws International is an Austrian group that fight animal abuse. Veterinarian Ovidiu Rosu led the charge on this rescue. The team tranquilized the horse whose ankles were bleeding from the chains. Then they cut off the chains. The entire process can be seen in the video below.
This horse was so grateful for being freed from these chains. Who knows how long they had been on there. The horse showed his appreciation to the veterinarian in a heartwarming way.
How wonderful for them to help this horse. What an effort that was. But, what a reflection of their character.
Rescuing a horse can be a laborious process. Especially when a horse falls in ice. Recently, a 40 year old horse named Cinnamon fell into an icy creek. Her owner was worried this was it for her lifelong friend, since Cinnamon didn’t have the strength to get out on her own.
But, firefighters came to the rather unusual rescue and spared Cinnamon from an icy death.
Two great stories! It takes a lot of effort to save a horse, but boy is it ever worth it.
