Dr. Drip, champion race horse, euthanized after being neglected!

If you cannot properly take care of an animal do not get it or give it to someone who can.  The death of this champion race horse in Louisiana is absolutely despicable.  This did not happen overnight.  How could you watch this happen?  As if not feeding him and letting him become maggot infested wasn’t bad enough, someone poured a hot liquid on this poor horse!  Animal abuse is sickening.  Thankfully, the perpetrator has been arrested.  Hopefully there will soon be justice for Dr. Drip!

“The St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s office arrested an 18-year-old for the alleged abuse of a retired race horse.”

Trending: This Is The DEADLIEST Bullet Ever Invented

“Dr. Drip was rescued last week from a field in Opelousas after an anonymous tip alerted the St. Landry Parish Animal Control to the neglected horse. The 13-year-old champion race horse had to be euthanized due to his condition.”

“Dr. Drip was a former Louisiana state champion and winner of more than 60 races and purses of more than $253,000. He was discovered by parish authorities near death from abuse and neglect. The St. Landry Animal Control Department received a call of a horse in very poor condition on June 20. The horse was lying down, at the time he was discovered, and could not get up.  He was covered with flies, maggots, open sores and was completely emaciated, said Jeff Dorson, Humane Society of Louisiana Director.”
