I don't understand why the OP would take pictures, say it is not worth reporting and then ask why others don't report it.
We didn't see it, you did - you know the exact location, so report it yourself.

What you say seems to be the case, there were formal complaints made in this instance.
The RSPCA almost joked when the area was mentioned that they could guess the offenders name!
Then said there was a special filing cabinet for these.

" Unfortunately the laws in Australia particularly relating to stock are pretty crap in respect to being able to remove animals and prosecute offenders. "

To prosecute they need to win .
This is what has been said.

Like I said this is just getting very fishy. The person that saw it won't report it at all.

FoxRidgeRanch;


Clearly you misunderstood what was written and that I had reported them matter.
The pictures speak for themselves.
I was merely saying the response from the RSPCA was not exactly positive.

I don't know much about all these laws and such since I'm young but what I would do is keep reporting it. I don't care if they limit my reporting, I'm still going to try to save their lives. Every horse is worth saving whether you know them or not. These horses obviously don't have a say in anything, so be their voice. I'm sure if they could actually talk they would be nagging every person they saw to help them.

Amber and Mac,

Laws here in Australia have been described as weak , as well there is the cost consideration for legal actions which the RSPCA mention is in conflict with doing other work .
Repeat offenders have rights in court and often claim being victimised by the RSPCA.
Then the issues of the animal get left behind.

Respect for life and humane treatment of animals make the world a better place.
Injustice toward fellow man and animals continues if we do nothing.

Here are organizations that I found in Australia, I am sure if you contacted them, they could point you in the right direction.

Australian Equine Welfare Association (AEWA) - Home

Save Equus

Ruth, I understand that you are upset re the condition of these horses as any horse lover would, but you must understand that the RSPCA in Australia has very limited power, they cannot just go onto someones property and seize the horses, reports have to be filed, the owner contacted, court documents to be filed in court, court dates etc etc. This process can take months and years to be put in place. Also the RSPCA does not have the resources, finances or man power to care for at risk/high needs horses - they depend on foster homes that take on the horse or donatations (which does not go far). Not many people are able to or would want to take on that burdon financially or emotionally.
If you feel strongly about this situation then contact the local Council, the local MP, the Radio Station, News Reporters, all local Welfare groups, The local Pony Club, etc. This way you will have complete coverage and people will come to your aid and help.
Unfortunately by putting your plea onto this international forum, the good people here will be unable to help and the handful of Aussies that frequent the site are from all over Australia - I myself though would love to help but I am nearly 20 hours away from you.
You obvoiously can use the computer and phone - then start phoning the people I have mentioned and start sending Emails to all political people in that area. Make them aware of the plight and you should get help from the people of your state.
The only person that can help these horses at this time is you.
Good Luck!!

Also be very careful as you have posted photos of horses that are not your own and you do not have the permission of the owners to do so. Yes the state of these horses are terrible, but you are skating on thin ice legally and this can come back on you.

The RSPCA were contacted and a formal complaint made on that day, although we started out with other plans.
Please don't think we did nothing.

God bless.

Kim/Fox,

You might be to young to read the posts properly?
You also might be angry with the wrong people?

In all my 72 years not a single person has hinted at my being apathetic to animal cruelty.

Be assured you don't know the full story.

God bless .
