Following MONTHS of complaints by locals to the authorities (Dublin City Council, Gardai, Dept of Ag etc), this emaciated carriage horse was finally seized last night in Temple Bar, Dublin, by Gardai from Pearse St, and the horse pound. The horse is safe for now. This matter is currently being investigated by Pearse St Garda station and they are working hard to ENSURE this horse has a HAPPY OUTCOME.

On seeing the photos taken by the public, Gardai decided that it was time to act and quickly dispatched 3 officers to stand by the horse. They waited over an hour with the horse until the Council’s Horse Pound contractor arrived along with extra Gardai, unhitched the carriage and led the horse calmly into the horse box. Onlookers were so CONCERNED about the condition of the horse, they APPLAUDED when the horse was unhitched and brought to the horsebox.

MLHR would like to thank the all the Gardai involved at Pearse St station for their actions last night.
