An abused horse named Phoenix that we posted about on our Instagram account this weekend died despite efforts to save him.
Phoenix was being used for transportation … but when the poor horse’s legs gave out and he was no longer of use to his owner, he was abandoned on the side of the road for several days.
He was found by a group of caring animal rescuers named simh3it. They provided care and support to help the hurting animal.
Take a look at our original post …
Phoenix was loaded onto a trailer and carried to a vet to see what could be done.
He was very sick and severely injured but that didn’t stop the workers from providing medical help and treatment such as fluids and antibiotics.
Unfortunately, Phoenix’s injuries were too extensive, and even though simh3it worked until 5:00 in the morning, the beautiful animal was unable to be saved.
At Karmagawa and SaveTheReef, we’re heartbroken that this type of thing happens every day … and that’s why we’re bringing attention to it.
We have to start looking at animals as living creatures that deserve care and love just like humans.
This poor horse was left to suffer by itself for days and if some caring people had not found him, he would have died alone.
Make sure to share our information with your family and friends so that we can spread the message of love for all living creatures.
