This Vet Freed a Chained Horse, Not Understanding He’s About To Get The Thank You Of A Life time

Although this instance of animal cruelty is tragic, there is a happy resolution. To prevent them from running away, wild horses in Romania are chained by either their front or rear legs. The animals get painful cuts and wounds as a result of this. When a veterinarian from Four Paws International intervened to save the animals, he was surprised to get a thank-you bow.

A video that captured the crucial moment when Ovidiu Rosu was able to approach the horse and build trust before freeing him from his chains went viral, but what made it so powerful was the animal’s response.

Naturally, the horse was first anxious, but Rosu took his time, and the thankful horse appreciated the effort. When the horses were completely free, one of them approached Rosu and appeared to thank him for being so compassionate, despite the fact that they were trying to flee since they were suspicious of humans and in poor condition. The moment is breathtaking as the horse is seen caressing Rosu’s nose with his own to express gratitude.

The good news is that 4 Paws International has been engaged in animal rescue activities for quite some time. Regrettably, the video states that this is “a typical practice in parts of Romania.To join the front or hind legs of horses with chains.”

“These horses were initially brought to Romania by the Tatars between 300 and 400 years ago. Numerous horses were abandoned by the, who then began to freely wander the area. Lots of horses were also released in 1989, after the agricultural cooperatives in the area broke apart. This caused a big population boom– by 2010, there were as many as 1,500 horses living in the Danube Delta.”

More information was provided on the website regarding the horses’ concerns with the Letea Forest as they searched for food, including plants and bark. “Environmentalists and local authorities in the area needed to manage the horse population, so they decided to eliminate the horses,” the website stated.

Before the government adopted these drastic measures, Four Paws International had already offered assistance, preferring to discover alternate strategies for using contraceptives to control birth rates and maintain a manageable population. Their efforts were successful since there were less than 500 horses in the Letea Forest in 2017, according to an aerial census.

Someone who commented on the video on social media said:
It is astounding how many animals—especially dogs—live on the streets in extreme poverty. Thank you for helping the animals that can’t defend themselves versus harsh human beings.”
