If your show horse is old and no longer wins prizes, what do you do with it? This show horse, which was once a champion, is now retired. Is it fair on him for his hooves to be so neglected?

The little dog pictured alongside was in terrible pain after its ears were cut off. The owner had also tried to dock the dog's tail by tying a bicycle tyre inner tube tightly around it to cut off the blood supply. Thanks to the police for bringing the dog to us.

The owner of this mare and filly, who lives about 150km from Bloemfontein, came to the SPCA for help after vicious dogs attacked and badly mutilated his two horses. The horses were so badly mutilated they had to be euthanased to prevent further suffering. We tried to apprehend the owner of the dogs without success.
