Another Abandoned, Starving Thoroughbred Found In S. Fla.
South Florida Crime
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – For the third time in less than a week, the South Florida SPCA has rescued another emaciated, injured Thoroughbred.
According to the SFSPCA, the horse, identified by a tattoo, is named Foolish Treasure. She was found as a stray in the area of SW 195th Avenue and 202nd Street on Saturday night in Southwest Miami-Dade.
She is currently recovering at the SFSPCA rescue ranch.
Foolish Treasure ran her last race at Tampa Bay Downs Racetrack in 2008.
“After 2008, she falls off the radar,” stated Jeanette Jordan, President of SFSPCA. “I’m just glad we got to her in time before she was hit by a car or starved to death.”
Since last Wednesday, January 25th, the SFSPCA has rescued a total of 10 horses including five Thoroughbreds, one Quarter Horse and four ponies.
“With over 50 horses at the rescue ranch right now, we could use the public’s help to provide food and veterinary care for them,” stated Jordan.
