Clydesdale horses, fowl seized from Powell River property

July 15, 2009

Three ailing Clydesdale horses are under veterinary care after they were seized from a Powell River acreage by BC SPCA cruelty officers Friday.

One horse, a 14-year-old gelding, was infested with external parasites and suffering from an eye tumour and infection so severe that the surrounding tissue was inflamed and pus streamed down the horse’s face.
