Horse Allegedly Thrashed on Camera Deserves Justice

Target: Mr. Jody Smith, Sheriff of Cumberland County, United States

Goal: Demand an immediate and thorough investigation into the alleged whipping and dragging of horses.

A deeply unsettling video, spanning nearly 10 minutes and shared on social media, reportedly depicts a foal allegedly lying on the ground and subjected to repeated hits with what seems to be a switch or stick. Shockingly, the foal is then reportedly observed being forcibly dragged by a vehicle while it struggles to stay upright. In a distressing turn, the foal falls and is allegedly dragged while lying on its side. The accompanying caption reportedly indicates that the small horse is subjected to further abuse, including being allegedly run over by a Gator-type utility vehicle and described as being “waterboarded.” This disturbing footage has elicited widespread concern and outrage.

Authorities in Cumberland County are currently investigating the case and County Animal Services removed two adult horses and five juvenile horses from the farm in Fayetteville. The urgency of this situation is evident as a veterinarian has been engaged to evaluate the condition of these horses.

The welfare of these innocent animals is at stake, and it is crucial that all necessary steps are taken promptly to address the concerns raised. Animal mistreatment is not only ethically unacceptable, but is also a violation of our responsibility to safeguard the well-being of all creatures. Demand action now.
