Sulky Horse – Poleberry

Another sad day for Waterford Animal Welfare. We were called to an incident involving a horse and cars at Poleberry. Thankfully no one was injured. The horse, however, was a different matter. We assisted the Gardai in removing the mare to safety and to the attention of a vet. Following examination, very serious injuries to her front shoulder were found. The extent of the injury is classed as unviable for recovery by the vets and humane euthanasia was recommended. Thank you to all involved especially Ali Pierce and Claire and Ronan Knox for keeping the mare safe until we arrived
