The DSPCA still believes horse was alive when set on fire

As of Dec. 2, the Dublin Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals [DSPCA] still holds by its adamant belief that a horse was killed by pouring gasoline all over him and then torching him while he was still alive. This continues to shock and horrify people to the point of outrage and fury. Upon hearing of the horse’s death, people initially react with shock, and then the revulsion, the fury and disgust and the horror set in.

Already calls are coming in from all over for more animal care controls.

Hardened DSPCA workers who have seen the abominations people can exert on others and on animals have expressed out-and-out condemnation and shock at the brutal killing of the horse that died from the extensive injuries of being set on fire.

According to DSPCA, this is considered one of their worst cases. Brian Gillen who is the DSPCA’s chief executive officer, said that everyone in his organization is deeply concerned by this “sinister development.”

His organization believes several youths may have committed this crime, and even poured a liquid down the horse’s throat. None of these claims has yet been substantiated – since the writer cannot tell what occurred and what is supposition, nothing further can be written at the moment.

The gardai of the surrounding areas are investigating the incident, five other horses have been moved out of harm’s way, and everyone is being extra vigilant. At this point, the officials must have everyone’s cooperation so they can do their best work to resolve the crime.

Perhaps Elsa P, who did not want to be named, summed it up best:

It hurts. To think of the horse’s pain and suffering. ... I am so disgusted that wretched humans could have done this terrible deed. I hope they catch the hoodlums because some of us would surely like to tickle them with our pitchforks.
