Unfortunately there are sick people out there (closer than you think!) who cant care for their animals, so instead of selling they just let them starve & die.
Last winter there was a rescue just 20 minutes from my house on the Carrot Creek road. over 16 starved horses were rescued (there were carcasses on the property):-x
One mare has been featured on the news several times. She was pregnant (gorgeous foal!) & had a gaping hole in her head! They're not sure how she got it, but you could see the bone & her sinuses!
She (& all others) were taken into Alberta's Rescue 100 Foundation & she just had reconstructive surgery to fix the wound & is up for adoption:D

ya im seriously thinking about dropping to be a vet and go into stopping animal abuse. its freaking pathetic

People can be sick. It's even worst that many aren't caught and continue to do it over and over again.

You don't need to drop out of vet school to stop abuse. I'm planning to be an equine vet and I still want to start a mini rescue or fund one at the same time. Maybe even offer my services for free. :)

Pretty harsh statement that the owners need to die...jmho. YES, what we see sometimes, is horrific, but I think alot of owners just don't know any better; if you're taught that way, how do you know otherwise...this is often the case in other countries, especially, because animals are veiwed as beasts of burden, or a food source, not a 'pet' or animal of recreation. People need to be educated, and unfortunately in different countries animals are not veiwed in the same way as they are here by alot of folks.

There are so many ways to help animals, without dropping your degree...you would probably be much more helpful if you DO complete your degree.

That isn't nessicarily true. It is kind of like how you know the number 2 is the number 2, and not the number 3.

Yes, they look different. And they hold different values. But the only reason 2 isn't 3 is because somebody told or showed you that there is a difference, and you believed them.

The same thing applies in different countries. If somebody tells you a horse or an ox is a beast of burden, nothing more, nothing less; then that is what you believe. Because you were raised where you treat horses as pets and companions, that is what you believe to be correct. Animals in different countries hold different values to the members of the nations.

I'm not saying that abuse is right. I think it is horrid what some people do to their animals. But you must understand that some of this happens because they don't know anything but what they are taught. That is why we must educate and advocate for the animals.
