Did you know that last year, 493 horses died or were euthanized within 72 hours of sustaining a catastrophic race injury? That’s about 10 horses each week. In the last ten years, a total of 6,134 horses have died. That tally doesn’t include deaths from training. Not to mention what happens to these majestic horses once they are done racing…not making money any longer.
Moo-Chelle was found in Jefferson County by the local airport running alone, at dusk, with a black bear chasing her. Someone was able to deter the bear and they put her in a trailer. She went to the local animal control services and they called PIGS Animal Sanctuary to see if they could help. We said yes!
She was fully blind in both eyes, however, after a few months, she is training site in one eye. She needs to bottle feed several times a day for now and is growing leaps and bounds. She loves the staff and volunteers at PIGS, and is happy, growing, and so sweet.
