This horse was found this way by its owner in the town of Fernández, Santiago del Estero.
The peculiarity of the case is that the animal aged, so it is presumed he died in those days, came late to the next morning with a sharp cut in the eye area and one in the anus area.
Given this information, we asked the farmer for photographs of wounds so we could share the pictures.
The photos we received, show a cut with the total eye organ missing. It also has a cut in the skin about the eye bowl (2 cm. Approximately), with flush cutting areas and areas with irregularities cuts, similar to the action of the knife.
Anal area, may be a flat, circular section of approximately 18 cm in diameter, with detachment of the bristles of the queue, a “kind” rising above the anus.
It is noteworthy that around the body, on the ground, we see the typical kicking the dying animal, with many marks of respect.
No residual blood is observed, or the eye socket, or around the anus. Also on the ground. Yes appreciated, fresh bleeding hinted in one of the nostrils.
REPORT From ANIMAL OWNER
Equine owner expressed surprise at the cut that appeared in the eye area, saying that he had never seen anything like it.
Moreover, during the night he did not hear any noise, nor any evidence of action of scavengers such as crows, common in the area.
He stated that they did not work on the body with knives, and if someone had, by the proximity of the animal to the house, they would have heard, because the farm has dogs that alert any them of any movement.
