A SICK horse has died while many others have collapsed at the Feria de Abril in Sevilla this week.
The animal, which suffered from enteritis – an inflammation of the intestine – tragically died on Sunday after it had lugged a carriage across the city without eating or drinking all day.
Emergency services in Sevilla confirmed via Twitter that the owner of the horse has been denounced.
Por favor, al salir del Real de la #FeriaSevilla18 con tu caballo, directos a la cuadra por el camino más corto y seguro
Tu caballo lleva muchas horas de esfuerzo y merece un descanso.
De noche usa prendas reflectantes.
