Poland: Pony Intervention

The team of Viva! Interwencje, on behalf of Animals' Angels, inspects a farm where according to received information a pony is held lacking proper care and shelter.

It turns out that the shelter the owners have built after recent interventions of the local authorities is far too insufficient. There is no daylight and proper bedding. The straw is stored inadequately and gets wet. The pony is overfed, probably due to a wrong diet. The owner also keeps hens. All animals lack water access. The owner is ordered to improve the maintenance conditions and contact a veterinarian to adjust the pony's diet.

The pony was bought as a therapy aid for a disabled child, but no matter how important the reason, the animals deserves proper living conditions.

The case will be monitored further.
