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.

La Policia Local has opened an investigation into the owner’s actions which could result in a fine of up to €1,500.

Animal rights party, PACMA, has condemned the incident and others on social media.

In a tweet, PACMA, said: “What is happening in this country? The animals need politicians who defend them.”
