Irish society has long been known as a disposable society. If “it” doesnâ€™t have a use then “it” is dumped.
The so-called â€œitâ€ in question of this story is a 15 year old pony. The pony was “badly injured” and “in severe pain” according to the Dublin Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (DSPCA) when he was brought to Smithfield market, where he was sold to an 11 year old boy for â‚¬8 on Sunday 6th Sept.
The boy then brought the pony to the local gardai station where the pony was collected by the DSPCA.
The DSPCA say the pony is awaiting â€œfurther investigationâ€¦.to determine if the animal can be savedâ€. The Metro added that â€œIf treatment is
judged too lengthy and painful, vets will destroy the pony.â€ â€œIt is appalling to think that someone allowed her to get into that condition and then offloaded her for less that the price of a pack of cigarettesâ€ said DSPCA inspector Liam Kinsella.
Activists protested outside of Fianna Fail Headquarters at 65-66 Lw Mount St, Dublin 2 asking Fianna Fail to end fur factory farming in Ireland.
This was organized by ALiberation and AFAR.
Fianna Fail are the only political party in the country that hasnâ€™t voted to outlaw fur factory farming. It is in the power of Fianna Fail to stop this industry today.
The Fianna Fail Minister of Agriculture can revoke the necessary licence for confining Minks at any time.
