Sidcup foal


A dying foal was funded dumped on a Sidcup footpath.

The RSPCA is appealing for help in tracking down the people who dumped the foal on a footpath, off Watery Lane in Sidcup, which was found last Sunday (30) evening.

RSPCA Inspector Vicki Dawe said: “The poor thing was in so much pain. It is unbelievable that someone would just dump an animal like this and leave it to suffer.”

Inspector Dawe called out a vet straight away and the foal was immediately put to sleep to end its suffering.

The piebald foal was approximately three-months-old and had an injury to his leg, as well as being severely underweight.

Anyone with any information on who dumped the foal is asked to contact the RSPCA in confidence on 03001234999.
