Stallion Kills Foal *video*

This video depicts animal violence, be advised.

I'm just wondering what could have been wrong with the foal for the stallion to kill it. He was a GORGEOUS stallion though, looks a lot like Wiski.

I'm thinking either the foal wasn't his or maybe the foal was sick or somethign. IT seemed like the foal couldn't get up at all. What I wanna know is why the mare just left the foal.

If you watch the rest of that documentary, the foal was sick and couldn't stand up. It had been quite awhile since the birth if I remember right and the dam and the other mares had tried to get the foal up.
The stallion was known to be aggressive and the documentarians were all pretty shocked by the whole thing.

Don't know how normal it is for a stallion to pick up and kill a foal by the neck but it makes sense if you think about it

I've seen the whole thing. The foal has been down for hours after it was born.

It was crippled, or sick.

In nature, only the fittest survive. Nature doesn't keep things going with medicine like we do.

I believe in the grand scheme of things being killed by that stallion beats slowly starving to death scared and alone as the herd moved on. Or dragged away by a scavenger to be eaten.

You say he WAS a gorgeous stallion. Has something happened to that herd? Is he dead?

that is so sad, but like you said rissa, its better to have that done then starve to death or carried off by preadators, the stud just put the baby out of its missery. Still sad though =(

i watched on animal palnet or the discovery channel, it was a zebra mare with her foal, and they were being attcked by heyenas(?) and the mare could do nothing for the foal because she was way outnumbered so she kicked it in the head so it wouldnt be rip to shreds while it was still alive buy the stupid heyens.

I don't know the more I watch the more I think the stud did that because it wasnt his foal. I hate that

I know about stupid owners having stallions to close to their mares and foals in their neighboring pasture.

Two cases I know personally of geldings picking up foals by their neck and trying to pull them over the fence. Not a fun day at all when that happens.

It's so sad but he was doing the right thing in sort but sad I would have thought that they would have just bitten the wind pipe and it would be quick

Yes, I agree that was sad.
It's a huge debate whether it was right or wrong.
From one angle, it is right If the foal couldn't move and would have had a slow and painful death.
On the other angle, it was wrong if the stallion killed it just because It wasn't his...
