The loss of Winnie and his legacy
A necropsy was performed. Winnie had a large cancerous tumor that most likely started at the right eye. It extended up around the eardrum and down to the hyoid bone. The tumor had caused paralysis and his inability to eat was causing him to starve to death.
There is no animal control service in this county. We are searching for ways to help and advocate for the animals. We are building a network of resources, spreading the word in our community. If you see something, say something, do something. Do it for Winnie. We will find a way to help. We recently went back to Winnie’s residence and had the remaining two horses trimmed. It’s not much but it’s something. Assisting the owners and preventing a case like Winnie’s from happening again. ❤️
