Relief for stranded horse

Shayal Devi

AUTHORITIES acted swiftly to take care of a horse that was stranded with a broken leg just outside Sigatoka Town at the Volivoli intersection for nearly two weeks.

And the Agriculture Ministry is calling on people to take better care of their animals.

"Stranded animals should be a concern of the owner," said deputy secretary Agriculture Development Uraia Waibuta.

A resident of the area Jackie Watt had earlier stated it was evident the horse belonged to somebody.

"This shows how bad cruelty to animals is. The horse with its broken leg, stands on the road and tries to get across."

She said she spoke to the Sigatoka Town Council and was informed the area was outside the council's boundaries.
