Xena the Fighter was one of our Bucket Fund recipient’s last month. Although the photos are graphic and her wounds were very severe, the mare is recovering.
(Her story is linked here.)
Xena’s rescuers and the veterinarians knew she was attacked … but by WHAT? How? What happened to this mare?
Most thought that Xena must have been attacked by a roaming pack of dogs – or something like that.
Last week, I received this email from a reader in Southern CA – (close to where Xena was found):
“Our (sic) underground horsemen in SoCal alerted me that there’s a new gang betting activity. It’s gone from pitting fighting dogs against one another to now dog pack versus horse. It’s all about the money. And it’s an old Roman game activity. Prey vs predator. Betting.”
So, let’s all be aware of this new and disgusting game. If we are aware of it, maybe we can stop it before it grows.
Spread the word.
