"Tomorrow the pony will die!" After reading the ad, the girl secretly ordered a “cargo delivery” to the granny garden
“I went out into the yard and was dumbfounded!”
Do you know well everything that happens in your own garden? Are you sure?
One woman also thought so, until one day she went out, as usual, to do the troubles in her infield. Suddenly she was hailed from the gate. And imagine the surprise of a pensioner when she found a very sad horse standing there in the backyard!
True, it was not a big horse, but just a pony, but the hostess’s surprise did not decrease.
The courier (it was not the official representative of the carrier, but simply an unfamiliar man) said that the animal was delivered to the address - in accordance with the online order. And left.
The shocked woman turned for explanations to the 13-year-old granddaughter who was standing nearby and saw that the girl was guilty bowing her head ...
"The pony was left to live one day!"
As it turned out, the day before the schoolgirl read an ad on the Internet. It was the most “black”: the author wrote that he could no longer take care of his pony, and if no one took him, the animal would be euthanized the next day ...
I must say that dishonest people often resort to such a trick - after all, such a formulation of the question (“there are N hours left to death ... ") instantly activates all those whose heart has not yet turned to stone.
So this girl, crying, called the specified number and called the address of her beloved grandmother. “Anything just to save!” Granny will forgive and help ... " - the child thought in despair.
It was in this way that a pony with a long bang appeared in the garden of a resident of the English city of Stoke-on-Trent. Of course, the grandmother did not strongly scold her granddaughter - after all, a reprimand was not put for the kindness of the heart! Together they turned to the World Horse Welfare charity, which sent their representatives to them.
But even a layman understood that the poor pet was malnourished for a long time and did not receive the necessary care. The meager and dirty pony hair was covered with ticks, which caused the poor fellow great discomfort!
The good thing is that it ends well ...)
The animal was taken to the Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation Center, to the farm. There, the pony feels really good and is gradually recovering! Soon he will find a new good house.
And they called the boy Mr. Melvin-Andrews, in honor of the rescuers who came to his rescue
The Animal Welfare Society is working hard to find people responsible for pet abuse.
“We often see how sites of free anonymous ads become sites for hidden lawlessness, - complains officer Rachel Andrews. - We would not want other animals to suffer the same fate as Melvin! Although on the other hand, perhaps this announcement saved his life ... "
In general, two things are worth rejoicing in this story.
Firstly, the fact that the pony is safe and loving now (after all, a farm outside the city cannot be compared to a dirty stall in the yard of a negligent owner!).
And secondly, the fact that many children, despite the possible censure by practical adults, open their hearts to the misfortune of others. And for this - many thanks to the girl herself, the heroine of this story, and the people who raised her!
A worthy example in our chaotic world, isn't it?
