GRAPHIC WARNING Haiti starved horse still alive

WARNING, even I gasped when I saw this. A friend of mine who is a nurse, just got back from Haiti to help with medical care. She took a lot of pictures down there, including this poor horse, who I have no idea how, is still standing alive. I'm sure she must have been a beautiful mare at one point. I have no idea how she managed to stay alive in this condition.

Scroll below.

Oh my goodness!!!! I hope someone can help her! She deserves to survive!

Is anyone helping the poor thing? I highly doubt it since the earthquake victims are "more important" but if I were able to make a difference for the poor girl, I would be focusing on her.

That just absolutely breaks my heart, oh my god. I am fighting back the frustration and tears. I just want to reach through the screen and touch her.

It's awful. And although I am a huge animal lover I think the very thin boy behind her is even sadder.

I think the worst part is that animals there were like that before the earthquakes. The society doesn't have "pets". The animals wander around where they please. Well that is what I heard : /

She should have been used to feed some haitians before she got that thin. She must have been sick or they would have eaten her already. I would bet that stray animals and livestock of any kind are hard to find in Haiti.
