Sign Petition Demanding That Those Responsible For Starving Hundreds Of Horses On A South African Military Base Be Held Accountable For Their Crime!

As reported by WAN earlier this month, inspectors from the National Council of SPCA’s (NSPCA) were horrified to discover that horses in the care of the South African Army Special Infantry Capability (SAASIC) unit of the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) were starving to death.

Tragically, according to a statement released by the organization and a post on its Facebook page, “25 horses on the army base were in such emaciated condition or compromised state of health that to prevent further suffering they had to be euthanized.

An estimated 169 horses were found with no food and had nothing to eat except soil and their own feces. They were struggling to stay alive as a result of being starved.

Now there is a Care2 petition demanding that the people responsible for this crime be brought to justice. 

Food was only provided to the horses after the NSPCA forced the army unit into taking emergency action to secure adequate feed for the animals.

Starvation wreaks havoc on an animal, and to put an animal through something that terrible is unquestionably evil, especially when you have the means to feed them. Such was the state of these horses that twenty-five had to be euthanized, the others healthy enough to be relocated to another facility.

The NSPCA said it had signed a memorandum of understanding with SANDF in 2016 regarding the care of animals, but that the army had continually reneged on the agreement, showing that they are incapable of looking after animals, and should not be entrusted with any, let alone horses.

People are encouraged to sign the petition demanding that this cruelty does not go unnoticed or unpunished HERE!
