Chertsey, Surrey – PETA is offering a reward of up to £1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons who dragged a seriously ill foal behind a car and left him to die in a field in Thameside, Chertsey. The emaciated animal had been suffering from diarrhoea, dehydration and worms when he was reportedly dragged behind a vehicle and dumped in a remote field, where his cruel captors covered his near-lifeless body with a tarpaulin, rocks and logs. The RSPCA discovered the young horse “barely alive” and attempted to rehabilitate him but were unsuccessful.
