A story without a happy ending
The man who called us about this wished to remain anonymous. He complained about a horse on an empty lot at the beach in Playa Hermosa. As the condition of the horse appeared to be terrible, we immediately went there to see the animal. It was even worse than we could imagine. There was no grass, no hay, no water, no shade – the horse was just skin and bones with big sad eyes, and we had the feeling that this horse had already given up living.
As there are laws in Costa Rica which punish animal cruelty, we called the police, found witnesses which would testify that the horse was there for more than 2 months without food and shelter, and we denounced the owner. Our local police is always very cooperative so we hoped to win the case. But unfortunately the judge didn’t agree with us, and we lost. The owner left the court without paying any consequence for his cruelty.
