The story of this little pony is also amazing. The animal was run over on a road next to a centre for dogs and cats well known in Malaga. After he lay on the road for several hours he was finally picked up and then left without veterinary care for several days until someone reported the situation. Police report in hand, we were authorised to ‘rescue’ him once again and take him to the centre. When we arrived at home, at CYD, of course the first thing we did was arrange the visit of a veterinarian! Many times, we have reported that owners do not call veterinarians when animals become ill, but without the backing of specialised centres or public institutions, the situation remains simply deplorable.
